Self-Signed Certificates

Self-signed SSL/TLS certificates are typically used for the following reasons:

  • Testing environments
  • When a CA is not present or an organization doesn’t want to spend resources creating their own CA.
  • When an organization doesn’t want to spend the money on a known CA such as GoDaddy, Verisign, Thawte, etc.

Before the Zeus Books website goes online, you have to test the website you created in Week 2 using a self-signed certificate on the Login page only.

  • Description of how the three major web browsers—Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome present SSL/TLS certificates differently to the end user (two pages).
  • Summary of the importance of a SSL/TLS certificate for websites (one page).

Submission Details:
