.SH NAME
update-ca-certificates \- update /etc/ssl/certs and ca-certificates.crt
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B update-ca-certificates
.RI [ options ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the
.B update-ca-certificates
command.
.PP
\fBupdate-ca-certificates\fP is a program that updates the directory
/etc/ssl/certs to hold SSL certificates and generates ca-certificates.crt,
a concatenated single-file list of certificates.
.PP
It reads the file /etc/ca-certificates.conf. Each line gives a pathname of
a CA certificate under /usr/share/ca-certificates that should be trusted.
Lines that begin with "#" are comment lines and thus ignored.
Lines that begin with "!" are deselected, causing the deactivation of the CA
certificate in question. Certificates must have a .crt extension in order to
be included by update-ca-certificates.
.PP
Furthermore all certificates with a .crt extension found below
/usr/local/share/ca-certificates are also included as implicitly trusted.
.PP
Before terminating, \fBupdate-ca-certificates\fP invokes
\fBrun-parts\fP on /etc/ca-certificates/update.d.
