Description

Only use self-signed server SSL certificates in a test environment because self-signed SSL certificates are not truly secure. While a self-signed server SSL certificate can be used to give users secure connections, users have no guarantee that the server they are connecting to is genuine. Self-signed certificates are valid for 365 days.
