How do i install a self signed server certificate

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

After using the admin tool to generate a request CSR, how do I sign this myself for testing purposes so I can install it and therefore run using https?
I have keytool and certutil both available on the system.
My most recent solution was to cut and paste the request to www.thawte.com/cgi/server/test.exe and it would return a certificate that was good for 21 days. This however is not the solution I am looking for.
Thanks

Hi,
I recently found out a way how to install test or self-signed certificates and use it with S1SE.
See:
http://www.gtlib.cc.gatech.edu/pub/linux/docs/HOWTO/other-formats/html_single/SSL-Certificates-HOWTO.html
Follow the instructions there
1. Create CA
2. Create root ca certificate
Now install the root-ca-certificate in S1SE -> Security>Certificate Management and Install a "Trusted Certificate Authority".
Paste the contents of the file: cacert.pem into the message-text box.
Then restart the server. Now your CA-Cert should be visible in the Manage Certificates menu.
The next step is to send a certificate-request from S1SE to your e-mail-address.
The contents of the e-mail the server sends to you (certificate request) must be pasted into the file: newreq.pem.
Now just sign the Request:
CA.pl -sign
The last step is that you have to paste the contents of the file newcert.pem into the message-box of the Security>Certificate Management - now under the option Certificate for "This Server".
Then you have to reboot the server/instance again and it should work with your certificate.
Regards,
Dominic
