Test HTTPS using local IIS?

Do you know how to test my web app using HTTPS using local IIS?

Is there a test tool with IIS which supports this? And without needing to buy a certificate?

Thanks

Have you looked at any of the free cert providers (e.g. https://letsencrypt.org/)? If those don't work for you, then you can do a self-signed certificate, but you'll have to load it into your trusted store. The self-signedness will cause .NET to balk at an invalid cert, but you can use the ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback to bypass that (in Development, of course--don't push that function to production!).
