Hi

I have two questions that are somehow related:

1.- Can a CA sign a "localhost" ssl certificate?

2.- Can I use a private IPv4 address (RFC1918) as the CN (Common Name) in a certificate sign request and then send it to the CA to be signed ?

I ask this because I'm developing an appliance as my thesis project which is going to be managed using https and I would like to get rid of the browser warnings from untrusted issuer when using self signed certs.

Thanks in advance

hi tonejito - i have the same question!

i have an https site which shall make call to a localhost web server

but because https => http posts raise a browser warning, I need a localhost certificate

but using a self signed certificate is not an option (many users)


is it possible to have a REAL (not self-signed) certificate for localhost?

thank you!
