    If your device is missing a CA certificate for the SRX Series Firewall, a warning message is displayed. You can prevent this, if you install a CA certificate into the Juniper Secure Connect directory location of the device. To import user or CA certificates, see ../task/../topic-map/diagnostics-menu-ios.html#id-connect-and-connect-info-menu-option.


    If the following warning message as shown in Figure 7 is displayed, your application is missing the CA certificate from the VPN gateway (SRX Series Firewall). If you are a remote user, contact your IT organization for appropriate action.
