I've followed these steps to create and sign my own SSL certificate:
openssl genrsa -out server.key 1024 openssl req -new -key server.key -out server.csr openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt
In Firefox, I get these warning messages:
- The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.
- The certificate is not valid for any server names.
Of course I get the former warning, but what about the latter? On generating the CSR, I'm asked a lot of questions for which I give blank answers. None of them seem to mention the domain names, though.
