A scenario where a web based application was being recorded using IBM Rational Performance tester.
Attempts to log-in to the web application led to the the message - 'This Connection is Untrusted'.
The below message was noticed while logging into the application and only during recording through RPT. The message was not seen when the application was not recorded. Also, the option 'Add Exception' was not seen in the message.
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.
Below are the links to IBM user guide which has details on creating digital certificates and recording a test with digital certificates:
