To repeat my arguments from bugs #141479, #143392 and #143393:
* the /usr filesystem (inclusive /usr/share/ssl) can be shared between
several hosts; when there are multiple servers, every one would use
the same certificate. This will not work because CN must match the DNS
* the sharing happens in >90% of all cases over an unencrypted
network-filesystem (NFS). So, an attacker could easily get the
A better place for the certificates would be somewhere under /etc.
Indeed, I always wondered why the certificates had been put under
/usr/share/ssl and by whom. The FHS had been quite strict on this from
the very beginning.
/etc seems a rather sane place. Perhaps /etc/ssl/?
