Question: How to add DOD root certificates to macOS?

How do we add DOD root certificates to our Mac's?

I visited the information Assurance Support Environment site ( looking for public key infrastructure tools (Home > PKI-PKE > Tools) and did not find any for macOS tools.

My personal system is running macOS Sierra 10.12.6

Thanks in advance and apologies if this is a duplicative question

Have you tried deleting the certificate, then visiting the web site again to download a new certificate?

From Safari Help

Change the trust settings of a certificate

You can view or change a certificate’strust policies in Keychain Access.

Open Keychain Access for me

In the Category list, select a category.

Select a certificate, then choose File > Get Info.

Click the Trust disclosure triangle to display the trust policies for the certificate.

To override the trust policies, choose new trust settings from the pop-up menus.

Safari Certificate not recognized

Certificate isn’t being accepted
