Exercise scoring

This exercise is auto-scored. There is nothing to submit to your tutor.


This installment of the course project simulates the process required to generate a signed certificate. This certificate will allow SSL encryption on data passing between the Web server and the Web browser. If, for example, you wished to do this for the site, you could generate a certificate, then have it signed by VeriSign, and then install it.
In the simulation below, you will take the necessary steps for generating a key pair and then getting your public key signed by a CA. After your key is signed, you will then install your public key to enable IIS to provide SSL-encrypted sessions.
