To be honest, I don't know how to determine this. From time to time, I
get popup warnings about unknown certs .. one of the big offenders was
ubuntu.com last year. I never knew what to do about this .. I mean I
accepted the cert for the current session, but never knew what to do for
a permanent fix. What should one do?
> 2. It was the same C.A. it was last time
I don't know about this either.
> 3. That the URL in the certificate is that of your bank
Yes, this I know to do.
> 4. That the Organisation field has your banks name
Yes, this I know how to do.
