There are generally two options for obtaining a digital certificate (and a private key).
- You can generate your own certificate using the Cerberus Create Cert button.
- You can obtain a certificate from a recognized Certificate Authority
Which is more appropriate really depends upon your goals. If you just want to make sure that client and server connections are securely encrypted then a self-signed certificate is all you need. It has the benefit of being easily created through Cerberus and completely free.
