Safari 6.0.3 "can't verify the identity of the website" on https site version. But other browsers works fine


#1

OS X version 10.8.3
Safari 6.0.3 “can’t verify the identity of the website” on https site version.
with http works fine.

On other browsers like Chrome, Firefox https works fine.
But not with Safari 6.0.3

SSL: Flexible
Universal SSL Status: Active Certificate
Minimum TLS Version: TLS 1.0
TLS 1.3: disabled

All other options in Crypto section are disabled.

Could you please tell me how to solve the problem with Safari?

Would like to ask, how old is your Mac/OSX version? The current Safari version for up-to-date Macs is version 12, so you’re six versions back. I’m pretty sure this has something to do with SSLv3, which was disabled for security reasons:

This is a virtual machine with OS X version 10.8.3.
I wanted to test the website with old version of safari browser.

This article says that the browser of this version should work:

Hi @Marshal, it’s a bug with Safari and shows up in 7.1 well. The cert is showing as valid.

Some suggestions based on a quick scan of other instances of this error: upgrade safari, check the time on your machine and reset to automatic, even if it’s already set for that, (check to see if TLS 1.3 is enabled and if so, try with it disabled Edit - It’s disabled already)


#5

Yes, it should. It should go back to 10.6 from 2009.

My guess would be the TLS version too. Which version have you set as minimum? Safari 6 supports TLS only up to 1.0.


#6

TLS 1.3 is disabled

Minimum TLS Version is 1.0 (default)


#7

Probably some Safari peculiarity then. I’d test it on HTTP in that case.


#8

HTTP works fine


#9

So you can test the site that way.


#10

The task is to test https from the old safari browser.

Then I’d consider that task failed ;).

Seriously though, version 6 is not supported anymore and considering you apparently already set all settings to their lowest I’d file it as a peculiarity of that version :man_shrugging:.
