OpenSSL Command-Line HOWTO
Setting up a basic CA for development certificate issuance via OpenSSL is fairly simple, but most of the tutorials available online don’t show every step.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote a long post about random number generation , which I find to be one of the most fascinating subjects in cryptography -- mostly because of how terrible things get when people screw it up.
For ages the keytool application shipped as part of Java could provide all the functionality to generate a private key and certificate sign request from a Java keystore, but the most basic function, importing a preexisting private key and certificate generated externally, remained overlooked. This is fixed in Java 6, at long last.
