I want to know if and how to add a company's root cert to the drupbox trusted certificate store,
Or, alternatively, cause dropbox to rely on the OS trusted certificate store (windows 10).
Hi @SHRAGA, thanks for joining the Community!
I’ll look into your query with my colleagues in more detail to see if I can get an answer for you.
Thanks for your patience!
Thanks for waiting, @SHRAGA. Could you let me know a little more about what you are trying to achieve with this and the specific scenario that it would be used in?
Keep me posted!
My workplace uses an intercepting MITM proxy to inspect all web traffic. To facilitate this they decode the traffic and then re-encrypt it using a custom root certificate which must be installed on your computer. The dropbox app does not seem to work when the certificate is not the original certificate, because Dropbox does not rely on the Windows root certificate database but on its own unique repository
The question is:
Can Dropbox be configured to rely on the OS root certificate store (windows)?
Or alternatively, would it be possible to add a custom certificate to Dropbox's unique certificate repository?
This is possible in other programs, e.g. goodsync (see attached screenshot of the setting):
Thanks for the wait, I've received a reply regarding this matter from my colleagues.
They've advised that Dropbox is not compatible with, and doesn’t support, MITM proxies.
Hope this helps to clarify matters!
