i've installed the new OS X Yosemite recently. Now i'm trying to view the TLS Certificate and the Certificate Chain in the new Safari. In the older versions of Safari one just had to click onto the padlock to view the connection properties.

I know, it's all possible by using another Browser, but i like the new Safari ;-)

Best regards, Jonas


The padlock should still be there

HTTPS connection to Google

and by clicking on it, you get the certificate information as before:

Secure connection information

Clicking on «Show Certificate» gives the details:

Certificate details

  • Well you are right, even though it's kind of hard to hit. Obviously I wasn't able to... Thank you Matteo! – Jonas Oct 26 '14 at 19:22

    Note that URLs with some kind of path won't show the padlock, so you get the padlock only on the base domain. This works pretty bad with sites that redirect, I had to disable javascript to be able to get the padlock on the root domain for some sites. – Grzegorz Adam Hankiewicz May 13 '15 at 13:39
  • @GrzegorzAdamHankiewicz Thanks I'll edit the answer although I suppose it is a bug. There are sites, as you said, where there is no way to get the certificate ... – Matteo May 13 '15 at 13:49
  • @GrzegorzAdamHankiewicz Where you able to understand when it is shown and when not? For example google.ch/intl/en/about shows a padlock while ethz.ch/de.html not. – Matteo May 13 '15 at 13:52
  • Note that this padlock might not show up if the site contains links to insecure content or assets (like images, stylesheets or scripts). Use ⌥⌘C to open the Error Console. – Paul-Sebastian Manole Apr 6 '16 at 11:05
