    Abstract:

    A digital certificate is a mechanism that provides authentication (for example, in e-mail communications), ensures data integrity (for Microsoft Office or PDF documents), and secures communications transmitted on insecure computer networks such as the Internet. Using a SSL digital certificate is considered to be a mandatory requirement in all security guidelines relating to electronic commerce, but also for websites that store confidential information or perform various financial transactions. This paper highlights the importance of the SSL digital certificate to identify a legitimate Web server and presents the steps for creating a self-signed SSL digital certificate using the openssl command.
