I need to generate self-signed certificates programmatically with the BouncyCastle API. Can someone provide some sample code for this as i'm new to BC? I first need to create a root certificate/private key and then use that to sign other certificates, again created using BC.
Certificates are created using tools that come with the JDK. As long as the JRE is configured to use BC as one of its security providers, it should just work. Or what makes you think that certificates created with BC are somewhatsp ecial?
