Can I use Casper to add new security certificates for every Mac user? I want one to go to the Trusted CA container and the other to the Intermediate CA container. Preferably without any user involvement.

You can send them out using Configuration Profiles.

We haven't started using these yet and I think it would be a lot of work and testing to first create and use these. Is there another way?

Yes, you can package up the .cer files in a .dmg using Composer, send them to the machine and then install them using a script.
I didn't write this particular script and we haven't used it for a while so this might be a bit out of date.
It was intended for the .cer files to be placed in /Library/Scripts/Certs and just looking at the for loop I am guessing it will fail if there are spaces in the filenames.
#!/bin/sh for file in $(ls /Library/Scripts/Certs) do Echo "Adding $file" if [[ $file == "YOUR_ROOT.cer" ]]; then security add-trusted-cert -d -r trustRoot -k "/Library/Keychains/System.keychain" "/Library/Scripts/Certs/$file" else security add-trusted-cert -d -r trustAsRoot -k "/Library/Keychains/System.keychain" "/Library/Scripts/Certs/$file" fi done

Configuration Profiles = easy to manage
