Core Chef Resource Checklist

Before suggesting a resource for inclusion please make sure your suggestion meets these criteria for resources built into Chef:

  • Automates an operating system component that ships by default on systems such as authentication, raid, disk partitions, firewalls, containers, or virtualization systems.
  • Does not attempt automate 3rd party applications such as database, web, or application servers, which are best suited for cookbooks due to their fast moving nature.

Describe the resource:

A trusted_certificate resource will allow you to install certificates on macos / linux systems that will be trusted by the OS and apps.

Why should this be included out of the box?:

A lot of people need to install certificates on their nodes and this would give them an easy way to do it out of the box.

What operating systems would it run on?

Linux and macOS would be easy to implement. We can already have windows_certificate so it wouldn't make sense to do it again here.

Current cookbook implementation:

Should there also be an option to add a certificate to the certificate store that ships with Chef?
