In this article we’ll cover creating and signing x509 Certificates in Golang. This exercise can be a helpful reference if you’re writing integration tests for web services which should test HTTPS functionality, or otherwise working on certificate handling code.
In this article we’ll create and manage our own Certificate Authority (CA) locally to keep the examples here simple. Working with CAs locally will help prepare you for working with other public certificate authorities later.
