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:

In an effort to keep our systems up to date and as functional for you as possible, we will be undergoing scheduled maintenance starting tomorrow February 23rd at 9pm EST and completing at 5am EST on Sunday the 24th.
During this eight hour time frame:
If you receive any "our apologies" notices during this time frame, I'd recommend using the Google Cache version from the search results of google.com if available. Otherwise, you can still open a PMR using the Service Requests & PMRs link via the Support Portal tabs for direct assistance from a technical support engineer.
