Most browsers/distributions/etc ship with root certificates from the major Certificate Authorities, such as VeriSign and GeoTrust. Root certificates are used to validate the certificates presented by servers. OpenWRT does not include root certificates, so it is up to you to install them.

-Let say we want to install the root certificate authority for dyndns.org. The domain https://members.dyndns.org is signed by the [[http://www.geotrust.com/resources/root_certificates/certificates/Equifax_Secure_Certificate_Authority.cer | "Equifax" root certificate]]. We need to download the root certificate, then place it in the certificate directory. Certificates in /etc/ssl/certs must be named after their hash value so that they can be found.+Let say we want to install the root certificate authority for dyndns.org.

Make sure to use openssl from the OpenWrt device because if you try this from your linux PC, you may get a completely different hash for the same exact certificate due to a difference in the version of openssl.
