Abstract

Generate a certificate for NGINX for non-production set ups.

You should not use self-signed certificates for production systems. It is recommended to use a properly signed certificate for production systems. These instructions are intended only for non-production setups.

  1. To use OpenSSL to generate a self-signed certificate, on the engine machine run the following command:

    sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 3650 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /etc/nginx/cert.key -out /etc/nginx/cert.crt

  2. When prompted, complete the on-screen instructions to complete the required fields.
