I am using a network which is a WPA2 enterprise WiFi network using PEAP and MSCHAPv2. The certificates are self-signed, so I have received a .pem certificate file which has to be selected on the Security pane of the connection settings on the client. However Network Manager currently uses this selected file by saving it into /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/SSID-NAME as a path, so removing or renaming the original cert file messes up the connections. I tried importing the certificate into Gnome Keyring (which succeeded, it is listed under Certificates/Gnome2 Key Storage) but Network Manager was unable to find it.

Is there a way to convince Network Manager to automatically try the certificates found in the Gnome Keyring?

Or any way to make it remember/import the certificate which was chosen and not only store the path to it? (eventually it is only a few kB long text file)

As about my system: Debian 9.8 stretch with Gnome 3.22.2 and network-manager 1.6.2.
