One potential heuristic would be to try to verify some known good / known bad certs and see what results they give us. I filed a pyOpenSSL issue to this effect.

I'd like to contribute a patch for fixing this. there is some code on this gist with a working heuristic to detect unusable platformTrust, and import the certificates from the certifi bundle.

actually I'm thinking now that simply depending on certifi might be a valid solution.

the debian package for certifi just returns the system certificates:

def where():
    return "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt"

which (I guess) it's the same source for the trust roots that pyOpenSSL is using?

I don't know about other distributions, but then it would be a problem of the distributions to patch certifi to point to the distribution specific path.
