Create a X.509 certificatePosted: February 28, 2012
We want to use openID as we use Google as our mail client. To utilise OpenID you need to need to create a X.509 certificate, the best way to do this is via Linux and openssl.
I created a micro server in the Amazon cloud, so this should only cost $0.025 as long as I am quick 🙂
yum install gcc make
tar xvf openssl-1.0.0g.tar.gz
openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 3650 -newkey rsa:2028 -sha1 -subj ‘/C=2 digit Country/ST=County/L=Area View/CN=Domain’ -keyout myrsakey.pem -out /certs/myrsacert.pem
