I believe that Leopard has changed the way a certificates is made trusted and added to one of your keychains. [DISCLAIMER: I am no expert at this -- just a guy who spent a few hours on this problem and found a solution that worked for him. Backup your keychains and the certificate.]

To accomplish this, I used the "add-trusted-cert" command in Security (accessed via the terminal). I entered a command like this one:

security add-trusted-cert /Users/YOU/Desktop/rootca.der

You will need an administrator password. To import the certificate into one of your keychains, I think that after this you will have to double-click the file. It should open in Keychain Access, which will ask you which keychain you want it in (again asking for a password). Then it should import, and you should see that it is trusted!

MY MISTAKE. What I wrote above is actually useless advice. Sorry! Really you should just be able to double-click a certificate file in the Finder and Keychain Access will ask you what keychain you'd like it in.

That said, Leopard has in fact changed something about certificates. Namely, new system root certificates do not go in the X509 Anchors keychain, but in the System keychain. (Note however that as of this writing, some Microsoft programs insist on continuing to use the X509 Anchors keychain in Leopard. Google for more info.)

THANK YOU! This application saved my bacon. I've been hassling with Terminal to install/update security certificates for Safari, to no avail. This program made it simple. NOTE: In my own case, I had to make sure that the security certificate's file name extension was ".pem" (I had to change it from ".crt"). Once I changed the file name extension, it worked perfectly. Again, thank you!
