Secure HTTPS under Wine

I am using Wine 1.3.6 , installed from found at
Wine lets you run Windows software on other operating systems.

With the default installation, secure https does not work.
When I run the builtin Internet Explorer and navigate to a https://url , I will see this error "wininet:NETCON_secure_connect SSL_connect failed: 12169" in the terminal.

From Microsoft WinINet functions error codes, the error is SSL certificate is invalid.

# wine iexplore
err:wininet:NETCON_secure_connect SSL_connect failed: 12169

It appears that Wine requires the root certificates to be installed in Linux. After I downloaded the VeriSign root certificates and copied all the *.pem into the dir /etc/ssl/certs , then secure https works under Wine.
