My organization's WPA & WPA2 Enterprise secured wifi is prompting me (of course it has to be the Linux users only) for a CA certificate. It says Ubuntu users can just choose the USERTrust_RSA_CERTIFICATION_AUTHORITY.pem file in their /etc/ssl/certs folder. I cannot find that file listed in that folder for my Fedora 28 machine. Any advice? Also, what are these certificates doing? Your comments are much appreciated!

see if you can find the certificate in ~/.cert

my home directory doesn't have a .cert directory. I was able to find it in the bundled file though in /etc/ssl/certs, but that' different from Ubuntu. Am I just supposed to copy and paste the certificate out??

On Fedora, CentOS and RHEL, .pem files lie somewhere below /etc/pki. You probably should put the file below /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted.

I did find some pem files there but not the USERTrust one specifically. What do you think of the comment I posted to my question? Does that make sense?
