  • TLS Certificate Validity Period That Is Too Long

    Hi there. Using the latest versions of Chrome for Android, I keep getting the error: "validity period that is too long". For what I could determine, Chrome for Android will hard fail any certificate prior to 1st April 2015 that has more than 39 months of validity period. Burp Suite should generate the certificates respecting this condition.

  • Broken keyboard accessibility

    One of the constant frustrations when using Burp is the near total lack of keyboard accessibility when it comes to interacting with dialog controls; modal dialogs in particular. Forcing the use of the mouse greatly impedes efficient use of the application, and users with disabilities who rely on standard accessibility features would almost certainly abandon using Burp on the grounds that it was...
