Just tried buiding a new GVM 21.04 installation. Once I got through the changes from the previous release, I was able to complete a successful build on a Rocky 8 linux host.
However, I could not connect! Chrome and also EDGE seem to have been recently updated with somewhat stricter security checking. I got an error about the certs being invalid (the usual…), BUT, I could not log in with the exception of using an outdated copy of Firefox. All I got was the error about the cert being invalid. Do not pas go. Do not collect $200. No option to override and proceed.
In the past, with Chrome etc you’d get the error, but then had the option under the advanced tab to “accept and proceed”. This appears to no longer be the case.
I then shut things down and fired up gsad using “http-only” so I could at least do some testing (all good), and then ended up using actual real SSL certs for my GVM installation acquired from INCOMMON via out IT dept.
I cannot say FOR CERTAIN that this isn’t something specific to my own browsers, but I’m pretty sure this is a browser change across the board that will ultimately effect everyone building GVM from source and using the default certs.
I was able to still connect to my older 20.08 host, but I believe that still worked because that had been “accepted” as an exception long ago in my browser.
Anyway, not sure what can be done about it other than to give people a heads up in case you run into this.
