Enabling GIT_CURL_VERBOSE to research “unable to get local issuer certificate”

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/05/28

A while ago, I was fighting a corporate web proxy playing Man-in-the-Middle on all https sessions.

This helped tracking it down: GIT_CURL_VERBOSE “unable to get local issuer certificate”.

What I finally did was this:

  1. obtain the CA certificate that issues the MitM certificate in base-64 CRT form (which is the same as the PEM form):

I like it for a few reasons:

OK, last year, there was this Microsoft Legal Action and Controversy, but I think that is a once time thing (some people even argue that Microsoft wasn’t thinking), so I created the last script below in PowerShell.

A few open-source scripts to keep your NO-IP account happy (that also work on most other DDNS providers like Duck DNS):
