In this tutorial I will explain about how to add self - signed SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate in IIS 7 on localhost. In previous article I explained how to Install IIS on Windows7 and How to Deploy website in IIS7.

Steps to Create Self signed SSL Certificate are as follows:

Step 1:   Start IIS by typing the command inetmgr in windows command prompt as shown in the diagram below:
