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. From 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.
