Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

A friend, Horia, has written about generating your own Certificate Authority for testing purposes, basically because he couldn't find this anywhere on the web.

The purpose of this tutorial is to obtain a 3 certificate valid chain, consisting of a root Certificate Authority, an intermediary Certificate Authority and a self generated certificate signed by the intermediary Certificate Authority. The user certificate will be stored in a jks keystore so it can be loaded when need it.

For the complete how-to, see how to create a three certificate chain.

Thanks, Horia!
