Howto: Create a self-signed certificate

As igalic commented on this gist.

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -sha1 -days 365 -nodes -x509 -keyout server.key -out server.crt


req -new
Create a new request …
… using a new key …
… of type RSA, 2048 bits long.
Make sure to use SHA1 as this certificate's hashing algorithm,
don't encrypt the key and
make it an X.509 certificate, not a Certificate Signing Request.
