I got a problem on a LAN that isnt connected to the internet ( neither server or clients are ) and the connections needs to run SSL.

I tried to make a selfsigned certificate but the browser comes up with the nasty warnings and chrome wont handle them as i think i did a sha1 certificate as selfsigned.

Trying to find a guide how i on a windows server can do this but to me, nit being a security expert it makes my head spin.

It seems i have to be my own CA - and chrome needs SAN and it says need to be SSH2 ? - but is CA a network setting or is it part of the certificate ? I really just would like to be able to run our connections over SSL with no browser warnings, the security aspect as such isnt the biggest issue for this particular network the most important is the client browsers dont complain.

And if it requires something on thr clientside to be done can that be made as a download package that the client ( admin ) can run to do once ?

Would be awsome if someone could direct me to some CA for dummies with the goal of getting the cert going on a lan server in mind if anything like that exists am about to give up

  • I hope you mean TLS and NOT SSL. – Daisetsu Oct 29 '18 at 2:32
