Setup

Certificate Creation

The first step in the setup is choosing what SSL certificate to use. Figure 3 shows the option of either importing an existing certificate or creating a new untrusted certificate. The SSL certificate is used in the encryption of the traffic between SSL Explorer and your PC. We will create a new untrusted certificate (Untrusted simply means that the certificate has not been digitally signed by a Certificate Signing Authority). Before creating the certificate we need to create a keystore password (Figure 4).

Next, we need to enter the information that identifies our certificate (Figure 5).
