comment How to permanently connect to WPA2AES wifi with OpenBSD (through cli)
I'm surprised that ifconfig ath0 nwid SSID wpakey SSIDPWD didn't work. After you run this command, if you just enter ifconfig what is displayed? Do you get an IP address or any 802.11 information? Can you safely post what is displayed for that command here?

comment How to use linux tools to verify a site's authenticity
Can you post an example? Normally a web site has only one certificate. That being said, there could be a chain of one or more certificates from that server's certificate up to a trusted root SSL certificate. If your browser doesn't trust the root certificate, then you will get a warning.
