I'm trying to view the SSL certificate for a web site on my iPad.

For example, how can I view the SSL certificate for this site?


Using Safari on the desktop, I can click on the small lock icon in the address bar to view the certificate details.

How do I do this on the iPad?

I believe this feature does not yet exist in Mobile Safari -- probably because it's not in high demand, so it's not high on the development priority list.

Try submitting a feature request through the official Safari feedback form (select "iOS" as your operating system so they know you're referring to Mobile Safari): http://www.apple.com/feedback/safari.html
