openssl genrsa -out privkey.pem 2048
To generate a private key with a password:
openssl genrsa -des3 -out privkey.pem 2048
Create a certificate signing request:
openssl req -new -key privkey.pem -out cert.csr
To create a self signed certificate (as opposed to one signed by a CA), primarily for testing purposes:
openssl req -new -x509 -key privkey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 1095
