This gem provides the cURL ca certficates to allow Ruby/OpenURI to verify the authenticity of SSL certificates. Ruby 1.9.x will, by default, attempt to verify SSL certificates when it performs secure operations. This is good from a security standpoint, but when Ruby cannot find the root certificates (like on most Windows installations), SSL errors will occur. This gem solves that problem.
gem install ssl_certifier
