NROTC Access

Access to NROTC and other Encrypted Navy Websites

Many Department of Defense, US Navy, and other Federal Government websites use SSL to encrypt network traffic between web servers and browsers. This is similar to banks, brokerage houses, and e-commerce websites.

If you are having problems accessing our NROTC website (http://www.nrotc.navy.mil) or other similarly encrypted sites, the problem is most likely certificate errors such that the browser indicates that the website is untrustworthy and will not connect. To remedy that, the DoD Root Certificates need to be installed into Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Installing the DoD Root Certificates will allow your web browser to trust the identity of websites whose secure communications are authenticated by Department of Defense agencies. The DoD Root CA 2 certificate is included with InstallRoot_5.2x32_NonAdmin.msi.

Installing the certificates

Please note: The NRSA Application functions best in Microsoft Internet Explorer. The supported browsers do include; Internet Explorer 7 and above, Firefox 12 to 42, and Google Chrome 33 to 46.

  1. Double-click “InstallRoot_5.2x32_NonAdmin to launch the installation wizard.
  2. On the Welcome screen of the wizard, click Next.
  3. On the Choose a file location screen of the wizard, enter the desired installation location for InstallRoot and click Next. The default path for both versions of InstallRoot 5.2 is: C:\Program Files\DoD-PKE\InstallRoot
  4. On the InstallRoot Features screen of the wizard, check the features desired for installation. By default, all features will be installed. Unless there is a specific reason not to install a feature, it is recommended that all features are selected and installed.
  5. On the Begin Installation screen, click Install to install the program. If prompted, click Yes in the Microsoft User Account Control (UAC) window to allow the installer to run with administrative rights.
  6. When the wizard completes installation, click Close to exit or Run InstallRoot to launch the GUI.
