Corporate SSL Issue

Our company enforces a corporate self signed ssl at the firewall so that all the transmissions are intercepted by the firewall. In case if the SSL cert is not added to ca on the client system, all https connections are terminated with error thrown at the client.

Example : curl: (60) Peer's certificate issuer has been marked as not trusted by the user.

I tried adding our company cert to following directory /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/ And then ran the command update-ca-trust extract

This did not work so I tried doing following Copy the certificate to following directory /etc/pki/ca-trust/source/anchors/ And then ran the command update-ca-trust extract

Can you please tell me if there is anything I can do to fix this ?

Regards, Saurabh

Try the instructions at . It sounds like you are, so check that the certificate is in the right format. If you're using Firefox, you could also add it directly in there in the certificates settings.

Can you open https sites in Firefox? If not, then try adding the certificate in there and see if it works.

Firefox has its own certificate store. So I can add cert to it and it works. I am stuck with command line tasks such as dnf update

That's good, so you know that you have the right certificate. What is the output of ls -l /etc/pki/tls/cert.pem /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt? What happens if you add the certificate to the end of /etc/pki/tls/cert.pem? Is it already there?

Please note that adding corporate ssl cert to Fedora cert can be achieved by following steps in

Also the dnf update failure was due to our firewall blocking dnf and yum applications.
