How to get wget to trust my self signed certificate without using --no-check-certificate?

I was searching around for answers and it seems that I have to add certification to /etc/ssl/certs. 

Here's the error

ERROR: cannot verify's certificate, issued by ‘/C=US/O=Company_Name/CN=Intel Intranet Basic Issuing CA 2B’:
Self-signed certificate encountered.
To connect to insecurely, use `--no-check-certificate'.

How do I add a certification to /etc/ssl/cert?

Based on wget man page, this looks like to affect the server certificate. You need to specify your self-signed certificate as a valid CA certificate locally.

To do this, specify the certificate as --ca-certificate=... in wget.

Hope this helps.
