I would like to generate my own SSL certificates. This will be used for testing internal IIS and WCF based applications. While i can create a self-signed certificate, that is not an accurate test for what our user will experience when installing our software in public and adding a production ssl certificate.
My question is: Will the Microsoft 2003 Standalone CA allow me to create certificates that will be trusted by all browsers??
If the answer is yes, then do I need to update the root certificate that is used by my Standalone CA?
If the answer is yes, how do I do that?
Im guessing that I get a certificate from a VeriSign and then install it in my CA. Then the certificates that I generate will be “trusted”since, people who goto my website will see that the certificate was generated by my company and VeriSign trusts me.
