Sorry for any confusion with this question. I'm not even sure exactly what I'm asking.

So what I'm trying to do is reverse-engineer an android app, and then building a python program on my Windows PC to connect to the server of that app.

I ran into some problems though with some sort of "sign request" that has to be passed through the headers.

On some random website, I was able to find an old post by someone with some coding to do the "sign request", but it's referencing to a "signing server", and I don't what that means exactly.. like whether or not I need to setup my own server and install a certificate, etc. (or if it can be a self signed cert)

Anyways, here is a piece of the code (from the other site) where I am trying to figure out what to do with the signing server.

(there's some other code but I'm sure it's not important.. mostly just curious about this first line with the URL which I'm sure is just an example)

signing_server = "http://20.45.122.164:8888/sign"
payload = "some random data"
resp = session.get(signing_server, data = payload) 

(ultimately I need the signature from this like of code)
return json.loads(resp.text)["signature"]

Any idea? I don't know much about this stuff... but I'm hoping it's something easy where I can just throw in some random server online and have it signed for me.

Do I need my own server for signing certificates?
