I am configuring https for IIS 7.0 and I need to create a test certificate for IIS 7.0 server. I am new to create certificate for IIS 7.0, and I only need server certificate, no need for client certificate.

I am configuring IIS 7.0 on my Windows Vista Enterprise.

Any recommended readings or documents?

thanks in advance, George
