SSL certificate installation on Linux

Depending on the Linux distribution you can have different ways to import the certificate.

We are going to assume that the CA certificate file has been downloaded in a file named ca.crt in the current directory.

Debian and derivates

On these distros you simply have to install a package named ca-certificates and download the CA in a specific location on your file system. Run these commands as root user.

$ apt-get install ca-certificates
$ install -m 644 ca.crt /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/autistici-ca.crt
$ update-ca-certificates
   
Done! Now Autistici's CA is among the ones recognized by your system.

Fedora

These are the commands for Fedora:

$ sudo cp ca.crt /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/anchors/autistici-ca.crt
$ sudo update-ca-trust extract
   
Done! Now Autistici's CA is among the ones recognized by your system.

Archlinux and derivates

If you are using Archlinux or some of its derivates you should write the following commands:

$ sudo cp ./ca.crt /etc/ca-certificates/trust-source/anchors/
$ sudo trust extract-compat
   
Done! Now Autistici's CA is among the ones recognized by your system.

Chromium / Google Chrome

Modern versions of Chrome/Chromium for GNU/Linux use the system-wide certificate store, so there is no need to do anything special after the above.

It is also possible to add this CA certificate directly from the browser (for Google Chrome this is possible since version 10) You simply have to select Settings from the main menu, scroll down till you find "Show advanced settings...", scroll some more until you reach HTTPS/SSL, click on "Manage Certificates" and import the CA certificate file that you should have already downloaded from our website.

Firefox / Iceweasel

It is possible to add this CA certificate directly from the browser. You simply have to select Preferences from the main menu, Click on 'Advanced Settings' and select the "Encryption" tab, then click on 'View Certificates", click on the "Authorities" tab and click on "Import" to select the crt file you have already downloaded from our website.
