SSL Certificates for your HTTPS server

Found an interesting (and useful) page for novices to look for when creating SSL certificates for HTTPS sites.

It worked like a charm right from creating a CA root certificate to generating the server certificate. The HOWTO setup openSSL for signing certificates is at http://www.flatmtn.com/computer/Linux-SSLCertificates.html. And the HOWTO setup certificates in your Apache HTTPD server is at http://www.flatmtn.com/computer/Linux-SSLCertificatesApache.html.

Also saw a good explanation of SSL working at http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/SSL-RedHat-HOWTO.html.

Hope this helps someone who is trying something similar 🙂

  1. I didn’t know you can do this with a SSL certificate. Is this a special type of certificate or it doesn’t matter? I’m asking because I bought mine from an UK registrar and the domain I will be using it on is targetted for the US.
