This post is not about the use of such a certificate (I know how to import a certificate the admin provides me with).
When I start p4v, for a short period I see a 'Security Alert' dialog telling me that
'The root certificate used for the Swarm integration is self-signed and untrusted.
Trust this certificate?'
and offering me a choice between [Trust] and [Don't Trust] buttons.
This dialog tells me that there is a problem with the certificate; my complaint is that there is nothing to help me decide whether to trust the certificate in question, which is a major defect in the dialog. It could be anything. The only secure option is to select [Don't Trust], which makes the dialog pointless. It needs to present certificate details so an informed decision can be made.
