By default VisualSVN creates a self-signed certificate which you can use. Using Internet Explorer for example just open up the VisualSVN site (https://yourserver/svn). After logging in there is a "Certificate Error" button next to the address bar. Left click on that button and then select "View Certificates" at the bottom. This will open the certificate properties dialog. At the bottom you can install the certificate.

If you want the certificate to pre-install click on the details tab and use the Copy to File... button. You can then used the generated .cer file to install the certificate on other computers.
