Create a self signed certificate, with OpenSSL, by running the following command.
openssl req -x509 -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout key.pem -out cert.pem -days 365
You can also add
-nodes (short for
no DES) if you don't want to protect your private key with a passphrase. Otherwise it will prompt you for "at least a 4 character" password.
days parameter (365) can be replaced with any number to affect the expiration date. It will then prompt you for things like "Country Name", but you can just hit Enter and accept the defaults.
-subj '/CN=localhost' to suppress questions about the contents of the certificate (replace
localhost with your desired domain).
