    In Google Chrome settings, "Under The Hood", there is a Certificate Manager. Under Authorities, there is a list of who knows what; many authorities listed. One is from Turkey, in Turkish! Do we need to be concerned about whom we're allowing as "Authorities" and should the list ever be pruned?

    OMG! They're still in there. LOL. I guess it is time to disable them.

    I must have three dozen Authorities listed. How did they get there? I didn't specifically request them.

    When I go to my 'under the hood' Chrome settings I see no "certificate manager". Hmmm

    Most browsers will include a few of the major authorities but I cannot explain why there are so many in Google TV Chrome.

    GTV Chrome > GTV Menu > Settings > Advance Settings > Under the Hood > Security: Manage Certificates > Authorities tab > DigiNotar

    I can't delete DigiNotar, only uncheck its trustworthiness. Is this the way it's supposed to work? You would think if a company no longer exists, it could be purged. When I click the edit button for the main DigiNotar Certificate Authority, nothing happens. I CAN edit the (one) sub-category, though. But there is no delete option. Is that a failing of Honeycomb?

    You cannot delete any software component that's package with the Android OS. Since Chrome is built into the package, I'm also assuming the authority certificates are as well. You can uncheck them to deactivate them and as long as they're disabled they won't affect you. The only way to remove the default certificates is if Google, Logitech, or Sony releases an update.
