This is checked when the certificate used to sign an applet, IS a trusted
certificate. This behaviour, SHOULD remain like that for trusted certs.

If you sign an applet using a dummy cert, this checkbox will not be checked by

Which certificate is being used to sign the applet?
Its the malware an applet?
Which certificate is the malware signed with?
Dont hesitate to ask anything to me (on icedtea mail list).

AFAIK, icedtea lacks ControlPanel, but this kind of certificates are stored as
trusted certs on icedtea keystores. Probably keytool will do the trick in a
better way.
If you have any more questions, ask on the list
