This script call OpennSSL to generate private key and self-signed certificate for TLS/SSL
To create income SSL/TLS conections, private key and certificate
required. It may plased in one file and in server options this file must
be directed in option "Certificate file". Some organisation have
signatures that known by browsers. This organisation provide normal
You may generate self-signed for free. Self-signed certificate
will not provide the security guarantees. Anyone on intermediate
routers may include bidirection proxy into your conection, put
his sertificate instead your, and browser can not know that it is
not your sertificate.
To generate file with private key and certificate you may
take e.g. OpenSSL and run two coomands:
ks.pem -- is result file that may be used as "Certificate file"
OpenSSL is free software.
Usualy it included in most Linux or BSD distribution. For some other
operation system you may take e.g.
CYGWIN port of this packet.
This script may run OpenSSL on this server,
to generate private key and self-signed sertificate.
You may use this for testing purposes only, because it conten
private key that must be never transfer throught open chanels
