what are Linux /etc/ssl/certs?
Posted on 2015-01-20
I've newly installed Slackware64 14.1 in the directory /etc/ssl/certs are 229 .pem files, may of which are labeled 'Root' and almost all of which are linked to .crt files in /user/share/ca-certificates.
I know what ssl certificates are, so I'm not asking for a tutorial, but what are all these files useful for? Why are they on my machine?
