First lets install OpenSSL on your Linux machine.
For Fedora and other Red Hat distributions.
sudo dnf install openssl
For Debian, Ubuntu etc which use apt package manager
sudo apt install openssl
For Arch-based Linux distributions
sudo pacman -Sy openssl
Now to generate certificate along private key in single command we can do it like this.
openssl req -newkey rsa:4096 -x509 -sha512 -days 365 -nodes -out my_certificate.pem -keyout my_private_key.pem
during this process you will be asked about information regarding your certificate like Country Name, State or Province Name, City name, company name, fully qualified name of the server mean domain name for which you are generating certificate.
You can now use the
my_private_key.pem (private key) and
my_certificate.pem (self-signed certificate) in your web server configuration to enable SSL/TLS.
Also if you want to extract Public Key from the certificates you can do it too
openssl x509 -pubkey -in my_certificate.pem -out my_public_key.pem
Please note that self-signed certificates are not trusted by browsers and should only be used for testing or development purposes. For production use, consider obtaining a certificate from a trusted certificate authority (CA).
