8.7. SSL Infrastructure

Debian does provide some SSL certificates with the distribution so that they can be installed locally. They are found in the ca-certificates package. This package provides a central repository of certificates that have been submitted to Debian and approved (that is, verified) by the package maintainer, useful for any OpenSSL applications which verify SSL connections.
FIXME: read debian-devel to see if there was something added to this.
