openssl authenticates certificates using the /etc/ssl/certs/ dir
While smart uses /usr/lib/ssl/certs/ dir in the target.

So if smart is wanted to be used with a https server it will not work unless the right certificates are paste at the /usr/lib/ssl/certs/ dir used by smart, but typically the dir used for the certificates is /etc/ssl/certs/

Steps to Reproduce

1- Create a https server
2- Tried to connect to it using smart and the below commands

# smart channel -y --add channel1 type=rpm-md baseurl=
# root@qemu0:~# smart update

you will have SSL certificate issues 581 error
