Root Certificates

Root certificates (which can be used for verifying websites, e-mail or signatures) are stored for convenience in two files, ksslcalist and ca-bundle.crt. The first one is a TDE configuration file (that is, it has ini-like structure and can be accessed by the TDEConfig class) and the second one is a simple text file, containing a bunch of X.509 certificates for website verification. The certificates in this file are a subset of ksslcalist and, despite being packaged, can be regenerated by KSSLD after a modification of the system ksslcalist file takes place (see here).
