I created a rest api project and I'm tring to access the https endpoint using curl like this:

$ dotnet new angular

$ curl -I -X GET 'https://localhost:5001/api/SampleData/WeatherForecasts'
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
More details here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html

curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not
establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and
how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.

I googled around and these are the steps I took to extract the certificate from dotnet and add it to my repository of trusted CA certificates:

This is what I tried to do to add the certificate

# export netcore development certificate
$ dotnet dev-certs https -ep ~/tmp/localhost.pfx -p somepassword

# convert it to crt
$ openssl pkcs12 -in ~/tmp/localhost.pfx -clcerts -nokeys -out ~/tmp/localhost.crt

# copy to a folder in /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/ 
$ cd /usr/local/share/ca-certificates/
$ sudo mkdir dotnet_devel
$ sudo chmod -R 755 dotnet_devel
$ mkdir dotnet_devel
$ cd dotnet_devel
$ sudo cp ~/tmp/localhost.crt .
$ sudo chmod -R 644 localhost.crt

# update CA trusted certificates repository
$ sudo update-ca-certificates
Updating certificates in /etc/ssl/certs...
1 added, 0 removed; done.
Running hooks in /etc/ca-certificates/update.d...

Adding debian:localhost.pem

I also tried setting the CURL_CA_BUNDLE env var like this:

$ export CURL_CA_BUNDLE=/usr/local/share/ca-certificates/dotnet_devel/localhost.crt

I keep getting the same curl error, more over, firefox and chrome tells me the connection is not secure
