Adding certificates to the trust store in order to get Burp updates

Seth Jackson Sep 21, 2018 03:07PM UTC

Would it be possible to add something in the user options in Burp to add a certificate to the trust store?

In some environments in order to reach the internet you must go through a proxy and sometimes that proxy is configured to do SSL interception which means you need to install the proxy's certificate into the JVM's trust store before you can download Burp updates from the UI.

I think this is a good idea. A few users have encountered issue since we strengthened certificate validation. We will implement some mechanism like this.

In the meantime, you can ask the proxy administrator to disable SSL breaking for portswigger.net, or manually install the certificate in the Java store:
