How to Easily Act as Your Own Certificate Authority (CA)
There are two kinds of SSL Certificates you can create for your own server: self-signed certificates and certificates that are signed by a Certificate Authority (CA). With a self-signed certificate, you always get a warning in the browser since the certificate is not trusted by the browser. However, a certificate signed by a CA that is trusted by the browser gives you the green bar. A browser trusts the CA if the CA’s public root certificate is installed in the browser and/or computer you are using.
