Summary: This package contains SSL certificates in PEM format that are used to validate the authenticity of remote systems, using the certificate authority system.
- Include root certs from CAcert (http://www.cacert.org/) and Software in the Public Interest (http://www.spi-inc.org/)
- Install certs which are known to *not* being trustworthy.
This ebuild installs a collection of SSL certificates that SSL-based applications can use to validate the authenticity of remote systems, using the certificate authority (CA) system. This works by "trusting" CA's, which in turn vouch for the authenticity of the remote systems.
