Installing and configuring SSL certificates is always an issue as to how to create them and where to store them. Most of the time people can find the procedure on how to create them, but they forget all the places where they have placed them. Some initiatives exist to have centralized key stores on systems, but getting applications to use them is still a problem.
Also on Debian is this an issue and key material is all over the system if youre not careful. Some Debian developers tried to fix it, but it ended in a “stalemate” and for now, an additional package called
ssl-cert exists to create self-signed certificates. This package also provides a structure for storing commercial certificates and accessing them in a safer way. We install the package
ssl-cert for this.
