I try to add a certificate under "central administration>security>manage trust" but I always get the following error:

The Root Certificate that was just selected is invalid. This may be because the selected certificate requires a password and we do not support certificates that require a password. Please select another certificate.

It is a self created certificate.

More details here.

I figured it out: it does not work in Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. By using the internet-explorer (for entering the central administration and adding the certificate) everything work fine!
