       update-ca-certificates - update /etc/ssl/certs and certificates.crt

       update-ca-certificates [options]

       This  manual page documents briefly the update-ca-certificates commands.  This manual page
       was written for the Debian distribution.

       update-ca-certificates is a program that updates the directory /etc/ssl/certs to hold  SSL
       certificates  and  generates certificates.crt, a concatenated single-file list of certifi-

       It reads the file /etc/ca-certificates.conf. Each line gives a pathname of a  CA  certifi-
       cate  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.

       Furthermore   all  certificates	found  below  /usr/local/share/ca-certificates	are  also
       included as implicitly trusted.

       Before  terminating,  update-ca-certificates   invokes	run-parts   on	 /etc/ca-certifi-
       cates/update.d  and  calls each hook with a list of certificates: those added are prefixed
       with a +, those removed are prefixed with a -.

       A summary of options is included below.

       -h, --help
	      Show summary of options.

       -v, --verbose

       -f, --fresh

	      A configuration file.

	      A single-file version of CA certificates.  This hold all CA certificates	that  you
	      activated in /etc/ca-certificates.conf.

	      Directory  of CA certificates.  /usr/local/share/ca-certificates Directory of local
	      CA certificates.
