I know from this answer that I can set a trusted/proxy cert each time I call
pip, but I can't find a way to set this as a permanent variable.
On this page it says I should be able to set some config variables in the
pip.ini file, but I do not have one in the user
There was some discussion about this issue, but it reads like at this point I should just need to make sure
opensll, which, far as I can tell, is up to date. The issue focused on Ubuntu, but I would assume it would have been a fairly broad fix.
So, to be clear,
pip --cert <location of pem file> install something works, but I'd like to avoid having to include the cert location every time.
I am using Anaconda 2.7 on Windows 7, if that helps.
As a fall back to using the system certificates, I have been able to do something similar for
git config --global http.sslCAInfo <location of crt/pem file>
