Yes, you dont have to have it tested in order to sign it, the JDK includes a program called 'javakey' that can generate key pairs and sign applets...

Deladier, I'm afraid that the javakey will only do for jdk1.2 (and I'm not sure about that as well). Your actual options are:
1. Use the Netscape signtool 1.0 . That is only good for Netscape. You can generate a test certification authority and test your applet signing process with it. It is not good however for distribution of the applet. Look in http://developer.netscape.com/software/tools/index.html?content=/software/signedobj/jarpack.html
2. Buy from verisign a personal certification authority. It only cost 20 us$ a year (note that you must be living in the US).

I use javakey on a daily basis, but I dont have jdk1.2, it works just fine for 1.1

Well, in that case I'm sorry. I thought you are just pointing for an option. I tried and didn't had a big success. Maybe I'll learn a new thing here...

Ok, if I use JDK 1.1.5 only for signing my applets, How do I sign an applet? (steps for it).
Per example, with an applet named prog.class

  Thanks.

There is a really good tutorial on how to create digital signatures and use them to sign applets available at developer.com
