Where are TLS certificates stored? How to list+delete them?

#1 Post by thoste » 2015-02-23 08:16

Assume I access a remote FTP server over SFTP and TLS.

A certificate window is presented by FileZilla client and the user prompted if he trust it.

Assume I click OK:

Where (in which file/folder) is this certificate physically stored?

How can I (within FZ client) list all previously stored certifcates and selectively delete one of the certificates?

Small clarification: FTP over TLS is abbreviated as FTPS. SFTP on the other hand stands for SSH File Transfer Protocol. Apart from the similar name and purpose, it has nothing in common with neither FTP nor TLS.
Where (in which file/folder) is this certificate physically stored?
In the file trustedcerts.xml in FileZilla's settings directory. It's ~/.config/filezilla on most systems with Windows being the odd exception, there it is %APPTATA%/FileZilla

Ok, thank you.

One open question remains: How do I list (and delete) one of the certificates from WITHIN FileZilla?

Do I really have to manually edit the

trustedcerts.xml

file?

Unfortunately there is no certificate management functionality in FileZilla.
