    Safari's certificates are kept in a system keychain file. It's in the
    file /System/Library/Keychains/X509Anchors

    In order to view it, at least one way, there might be others, is to open
    your "KeyChain Access.app" in the Utilities folder and use the "Add
    KeyChain" menu item under the File menu. This will allow you to browse
    the file.

    AFAICT you can't use KeyChain Access to modify this file, or even a copy
    of it. The only way I know of to add a CA certificate to the
    X509Anchors file is with the "certtool" command in the Terminal.

    I've forgotten where I saw this posted but if you need to add a CA
    certificate to the system keychain here's how:

    -------------Apologies to the original author-----------------
    You need to copy the master keychain used by Safari to your own
    ~/Library/Keychains folder before using certtool, then copy it back
    again (using sudo).

    So:
    % cp /System/Library/Keychains/X509Anchors ~/Library/Keychains

    % certtool i mycert.pem k=X509Anchors

    % sudo cp ~/Library/Keychains/X509Anchors
    /System/Library/Keychains/X509Anchors

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    (The last one is all on one line.)

    "mycert.pem" is, of course, your CA certificate that you want to add to
    Safari, substitute that with the real name of your certificate.
