I am trying to do a curl request using a client certificate like so:

curl -E my.pem https://some.site

And I get the following error message:

curl: (35) error:14094418:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:tlsv1 alert unknown ca
  • What does this mean?
  • Is this complaint coming from the server to which I am connecting, or my curl client?
  • (How do I determine) what is the ca in this context?
  • How do I make it such that the ca is known?
