NET::ERR_CERT_INVALID website sent scrambled credentials Self-signed Certificate 0 Recommended Answers 23 Replies 350 Upvotes

We have an internal web server with a self-signed certificate that recently expired. We generated a new certificate and now Chrome presents the following error:

------------------------------------------------------
Attackers might be trying to steal your information from 10.36.0.1 (for example, passwords, messages, or credit cards). Learn more
NET::ERR_CERT_INVALID

10.36.0.1 normally uses encryption to protect your information. When Google Chrome tried to connect to 10.36.0.1 this time, the website sent back unusual and incorrect credentials. This may happen when an attacker is trying to pretend to be 10.36.0.1, or a Wi-Fi sign-in screen has interrupted the connection. Your information is still secure because Google Chrome stopped the connection before any data was exchanged.

You cannot visit 10.36.0.1 right now because the website sent scrambled credentials that Google Chrome cannot process. Network errors and attacks are usually temporary, so this page will probably work later.
------------------------------------------------------

I have cleared cache, manually installed and accepted (trusted) the certificate on MacOS, restarted Chrome, rebooted, etc. with no success. It fails on Chrome Incognito. It also fails on Safari. It works on Firefox.

We are using the Fortinet Firewall for Content Filtering.  It offers two modes for inspection.  Flow and proxy.  All is well in FLow mode, but proxy mode throws the error below only when visiting google.com or youtube.com.  All other sites are ok.  I need proxy mode to work so it can log keywords.

This message shows up only on Chromebooks version 70 or newer:

I seem to find myself in a similar situation.  For me chrome doesn't connect with the message "...the website sent back unusual and incorrect credentials...".  However, for me both Safari and Firefox connect successfully.

The procedure I used to generate a self signer certificate is essentially: https://devcenter.heroku.com/articles/ssl-certificate-self

Had the same issue when opening Chrome in VS code debugging. Solved by allowing insecure localhost. Open chrome://flags/#allow-insecure-localhost in addressbar and enable the setting, then restart Chrome.

I have the same exact problem too. I self signed a openssl certificate for local host. Firefox and Safari gives me the option to bypass and proceed but with google chrome doesn't even give me the option to bypass and proceed. 

To let chrome give the option to bypass and proceed this issue on chrome's browser, follow the directions below:

(This solution is for macOS 10.15.3):
You would need to import the certificate to macOS's "keychain access".
Once the certificate is imported into "keychain Access", on the imported certificate click on "Trust" tab and let all the options in trust to be "Always Trust". This will allow chrome to accept the certificate for giving u the option to bypass ad proceed. But chrome will still consider this certificate questionable.

A quick way to bypass this message — open Advanced and see if you have a “proceed to website” option.

IF NOT, you can try typing “badidea” or “thisisunsafe” directly in chrome on the same page. Don’t do this unless the site is one you trust or develop. The text “badidea” and “thisisunsafe” says a lot!
