At [1] you can find the steps done in order to install Pulp on the testing
machine. The certificates are being generated by the certs role of the
Ansible playbook run [2], there you can find the commands and changes done
to generate the certificate.

Then you can scp the certificate from the pulp machine to the machine which
is running Pulp Smash and use it for authentication.

This would be the required commands:

sudo scp <pulp_server>:/etc/pki/CA/cacert.pem
sudo update-ca-trust

After testing is completed you can remove the local pulpcert.pem. Worth
mention that, on automation, Pulp smash is run from one machine and the
pulp server runs on another, also all the communication is done either via
