Connect BYOD Devices - Windows Certificate Install

Windows Logo These instructions are for Windows. There are separate instructions for Apple, Android and Chromebook devices.

On your Windows BYOD device, you may get certificate error messages when going to secure websites, or the sites might not load at all. Secure websites have addresses that begin with "https" and they show a padlock icon in your web browser's address bar once they've loaded. To load these sites without the error messages you need to install a Kerikeri High School certificate onto your device.

1. Ensure you are connected to Kerikeri High School's KKHS_BYOD wifi, have logged in through the Fortinet and have internet access. Instructions on how to do this are available here.

2. Open Internet Explorer (or any other web browser you may have installed), go to www.kerikerihigh.ac.nz/kkhscert.cer and choose to "Open" the certificate. The certicate will download and open on your screen.

3. Click the "Install Certificate" button. The "Certificate Import Wizard" will start.

4. Make sure "Local Machine" is selected then click "Next".

5. On the Certificate Store page, click "Place all certificates in the following store" then "Browse" and select the "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" container. Click "OK" and "Next".

6. Click "Finish" to complete the wizard.
Click "Yes" on the security warning message containing the certificate's thumbprint (Windows 7).
Click "OK" on the "Import Successful" message.

7. Close and re-open your web browser. Try going to a secure website, e.g. https://www.google.com
You should no longer get certificate security warnings.
