SSL for testing in Development

leave a comment »


I have found that SelfSSL is one of the best and easiest tool that can be used for SSL testing. This tool comes from Microsoft and it is free 🙂

How to get it?

Goolge “IIS 6.0 Resource Kit”. Download and install it from microsoft website.

After you have installed you should be able to see SelfSSL.exe under Start > Programs > IIS Resources > SelfSSL >

Clicking on SelfSSL will launch a command window. Type the command SelfSSL and hit enter to install a self-signed certificate into IIS.

This will install the certificate on the default web site. You cannot install the same certificate on more than one site.

Now launch your site by typing https://localhost/ in a browser on your development server and voila you have already started testing SSL.

Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2003; Windows XP
