A. If you want to enable SSL traffic to your IIS box for test purposes and don't require a certificate to be trusted by external parties, you can create a self-signed certificate. However, clients who access the server will receive a warning that the certificate isn't trusted.
- Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
- Select your IIS server.
- In the main IIS section, select Server Certificates.
- Under Actions, select Create Self-Signed Certificate...
- Give a name for the certificate and click OK.
The certificate will now be available for use.
