How to Disable Certificate Transparency checking in Google Chrome and Chromium-based applications on corporate-managed devices

Article Number: 70827

User-added image

When internal corporate users connect to a private domain using Google Chrome/Chromium-based applications, the browser/application will display a warning that the connection is "untrusted" or "not private" even though the connection is secure, the domain is internally valid and is trusted within the corporate IT environment.

The error displays:

User-added image
Your connection is not private
Error: NET:ERR_CERTIFICATE_TRANSPARENCY_REQUIRED


The specific message may vary, however, Chrome/Chromium-based application will indicate "untrusted" or "not private" and will reference Certificate Transparency as the cause.

Causes

There are two potential causes for this error:

1. You did not log your SSL/TLS certificates with Certificate Transparency in order to keep that information private.
2. You have only logged the root domain on the SSL/TLS certificate with Certificate Transparency.
 

Solution

If you are required to maintain privacy on a domain or subdomain that is protected by an SSL/TLS certificate, and thus do not want to log Certificate Transparency for that domain, apply a Certificate Transparency exemption policy to corporate-managed devices with Chrome/Chromium-based applications in order to eliminate the "untrusted" or "not private" warnings that would otherwise appear for those domains.

This specific policy is called CertificateTransparencyEnforcementDisabledForURLs

In order to apply the policy. you may refer to the Policy Templates provided by Google: https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-templates
