It depends what you want to use it for.  If you have a Microsoft Server you can use Microsoft Certificate Services to create your own SSL certificate.  If on Linux I believe there is Open Source certificate services you can install.

However, these SSL certificates will not be trusted by default.  If you are on a Domain you can make your certificates trusted within the domain, but anyone connected from a computer outside the domain will still get a security warning.

I do not know anywhere that offers free SSL certificates which are trusted by modern browsers.  Having said this some ISPs may offer a free SSL cert with a domain depending on your hosting package.

I also did a quick Google search and contrary to previous searches one provider does appear to offer a free ssl:  https://www.startssl.com/?app=1

I have never heard of them so cannot say what browser support they have, but might by worth looking at if you only need a basic SSL cert.

You can obtain a free SSL certificate from most of any brand but each has their own terms and condition. As per my experience, most of the brands like RapidSSL, GeoTrust etc offers 30 days FREE trial certificate to test the product and its installation.

As far as the longer period is concern, you can find few authorized resellers who offers one year FREE ssl certificates from popular brand like Comodo. Here is the more details about an announcement https://www.ssl2buy.com/wiki/free-ssl-certificate-for-one-year-at-ssl2buy/

Hope it will help!
