cert-sync — Mono Certificate Store Sync Tool


cert-sync [--quiet] [--user] filename


This tool allows you to populate a Mono certificate store, from a large  concatenated list of certificates in PEM format (commonly provided on most  Linux distributions).

Its use is intended to be automated at Mono install time, by distribution  packagers, to seamlessly provide SSL support to Mono applications without  further user interaction.
