the App::sslmaker manpage is a module that provide methods for acting as your own
CA (certificate authority).
It can creating SSL keys, certificates and signing requests. The methods
should have good defaults and "just work", so you don't have to worry about
the details. "Just work" depends on safe defaults, which will change when
new and more secure standards come along.
The openssl commands are based on the instructions from
This module is used by the `sslmaker' command line application, but can also
act as a standalone toolkit.
Most websites, such as shopping, banking or email websites, need to let their
customers know that the connection is secure. Thus, they need to pay a
well-known and internationally trusted CA (eg, VeriSign) to issue an SSL
certificate. However, this isn't always necessary. For example, if you're
setting up a virtual private network (VPN) or an intranet website, it might
make more sense to issue your own certificates.
Being a CA means dealing with cryptographic pairs of private keys and public
certificates. Ideally the cryptographic pairs should be generated in a secure
environment, which means a personal laptop or computer that is disconnected
from the Internet. It is not recommended to generate any certificates
directly on your server.
