Element Name Description

Specify a friendly name for the certificate

Type a friendly name in the Name box to create a self-signed certificate.

The certificates you create with this feature are not from a trusted certification authority (CA) source. Therefore, you should use self-signed certificates only to help secure data transmissions between your server and clients inside a test environment.
