Okay, now let me pose this (and I admit it's somewhat off-topic for
Where IS the standard location for this?
I've defaulted to /etc/mail/certs, but I've seen /usr/local/ssl/certs,
/etc/ssl/certs, /usr/lib/ssl/certs, etc etc...
On the same note, why should alpine assume at compile time that since I
don't have a cert directory at the system level, I won't want to use
I have several "hard" defines for daemons and apps which should be
checking cert validation, including sendmail, wget, curl, php, pine and
FreeBSD basically decided they didn't want the "responsibility" of
testing/guaranteeing those certs.
On the same note, bsd's builtin "fetch" tool will grab an
https://document, but doesn't even have the OPTIONS to verify the cert.
Is this more or less stupid than saying "we don't want to guarantee these
root certs, chase them all down yourself."
Personally, I *like* having those certs there, and I think the thawte
email-root cert should also be included. Oddly, ANY port (even an
independently maintained (i.e. "we don't guarantee this will make you more
secure, it's just for convenience") one, is subject to the same issue.
