 An SSL certificate is how encrypted sites verify their validity VIA your browser. In order for SSL (https:// -based sites) to work with our system, the end user must have the smoothwall certificate installed as a root certificate authority to their system. How they do that varies greatly, but the searches above should provide some of the results your guest might be looking for.
