Attempts to log-in to the Secured web application while recording in IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT) may led to the message - 'This Connection is Untrusted'.
The message is seen because, RPT acts as a proxy between the browser and the server application to record the data exchange. When a Secured page is recorded using RPT, the RPT proxy certificate is presented to the browser leading to the above message.
Creating and installing a digital certificate will help you get rid of the above message during RPT recording.
The digital certificates feature enables you to run tests against servers that use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for applications that require client-side digital certificates to authenticate users.
A digital certificate is a file that binds a public cryptographic key with an identity (a user or an organization). Trusted certificate authorities issue digital certificates, which are then used to authenticate users and organizations for access to websites, email servers, and other secure systems. A certificate store is an archive file that contains almost any number of digital certificates, possibly certificates that are issued from different certificate authorities.
Creating a Digital certificate store
A digital certificate store can be created using the 'keytool' utility.
You will find the keytool utility file in the RPT_
Navigate to the below directory through the command prompt -
Type the following command and press enter
my_certificate is an alias for your certificate in the key store. You may never use it, but every new certificate in your key store must have its own alias.
The certificate generation process will prompt you to enter some information about you. This information will be saved in the certificate. At the end you will have to confirm the entered information.
Once the information is confirmed, you will be prompted to enter the password. Enter the password given in the above command -
At the end you will find the new key store file my_keystore.pfx in your current directory.
Importing a Digital certificate into RPT
Import the certificate into the RPT project before recording.
Click on 'File' > 'Import' > 'General' > 'File system'. Import the required certificates into the project in RPT.
Imported certificates can now be used during RPT recording and playback -
Once you have the certificates in place, you may start recording a test with digital certificates. The below IBM info center link has details on recording a test with digital certificates:

Paul Gorans has written a great article outlining the Three deadly pitfalls to avoid on agile implementations and how to avoid them. And Paul would know... he is the global leader of the Accelerated Solution Delivery practice for IBM Global Business Services. He and his team support "agile with discipline" services, work with other IBM groups to integrate agile practices into services and product implementation engagements, and provide agile training to IBM Global Business Services professionals. So head on over to the Rational Technical Library and check out his skilled and experienced advice on how you too can avoid these pitfalls:

Pavan Hoskeri, a Rational Support Engineer out of our Bangalore office, will be live-twittering the event for @rationalsupport.
The hashtag for RSC2009 remains the same for all our global events (#rsc2009), so you can follow the action.
If you aren't following us yet on Twitter, now would be a good time to fix that! :-)
