Issue opening encrypted .CRT Security Certificate
I recently encountered an issue on one of my encrypted server folders, when I try to open the security certificate.crt file on this encrypted share, I get an error “Invaid Public Key Security Object File, Access is denied” Now… I know the file is not corrupted or blocked since I can open it in notepad. If I manually decrypt the file it launched the normal certificate windows with the option to install the certificate.
My question is, is this normal? and if so, what is the technical reason for this? My guess is that maybe something weird with crypto shell extensions and maybe MS blocks other apps and it isn't able to decrypt before it gets it?
Can anyone shed some light on this for me please?
