Self-signed wildcard certificates


A useful gist for generating a self-signed certificate with wildcards.

Using self-signed certificates can be a viable solution, especially in development environments. Sometimes… it can also be useful to have these certificates supporting wildcards.

This useful gist is very interesting for doing this.

It sort-of overlaps with ekeca standalone certificate for a server, only producing one less artifact (i.e. the one-foff Root CA certificate), forcing to install the generated certificate inside the pool of available ones in the client machine. This might or might not be useful, so let’s just keep it in the bag.
