functions for loading root certificates for TLS connections
Go's standard library crypto/tls provides a common mechanism for configuring TLS connections in tls.Config. The RootCAs field on this struct is a pool of certificates for the client to use as a trust store when verifying server certificates.
This library contains utility functions for loading certificates destined for that field, as well as one other important thing:
When the RootCAs field is nil, the standard library attempts to load the host's root CA set. This behavior is OS-specific, and the Darwin implementation contains a bug that prevents trusted certificates from the System and Login keychains from being loaded. This library contains Darwin-specific behavior that works around that bug.
