Quote from article "This is all lots of fun, but what happens when a client actually connects to https://propaganda.discordia.eris/? Won't the browser throw an error about not recognizing the Certificate Authority that signed the SSL cert? Naturally. Unless, of course, you've installed your CA's public key to the client browser ahead of time. Check back for my next article (or, if you can't wait that long, check out the book)."

Or you can just check out the linux documentation project.
