# Certificate verification

Libcloud verifies server SSL certificate by default. This means you need to
have the correct CA certificate files installed on your computer for this
library to work.

If Libcloud cannot find CA certificate files, you will see an error similar to
the one below:

`"RuntimeError: No CA Certificates were found in CA_CERTS_PATH."`

This can be addressed by installing the CA certificate files. Below you can
find the names of the packages which include CA certificate files.

* **openssl** on CentOS/Fedora (yum)
* **ca-certificates** on Debian/Ubuntu/Arch/Gentoo (apt-get)
* **ca_root_nss** on FreeBSD (ports)
* **curl-ca-bundle** on Mac OS X (ports)
