Read through the procedure, and then use the website listed at the end. And if you don’t want your private key generated on a server you don’t own, download my tool I created for Windows that doesn’t require installation: CreateCertGUI.

I also made a video showing the full procedure.

I am interested in Android and Web development, Open Street Map editing and looking for new things connected to the maps and spatial data. I enjoy making stuff and understanding how the stuff works. I can code in many programming languages and I am really having fun of it. When having free time I am taking care of my apps and write some content on my blog. I enjoy the countryside, which is giving me opportunities for photography. My favourite motto from Albert Einstein is: "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
