A self-signed certificate (SSC) can provide security for an internal site or serve as a temporary measure while a fully authenticated certificate is obtained from a CA. Installing a certificate replaces the existing certificate.
  1. From the Setup list, click HTTPS Config.
  2. Under Self-Signed Certificate, do the following:
    1. Click Create and Install.
    2. Enter the following information:
      Field Description
      Common Name Domain name

    3. Click Create and Install.
