Hi all,
I want to know about two things:
1:what is a self-signed certificate?Is it the one which we get after creating our own CSR and getting it signed by our self-created CA?
2:where does the server gets its private key and public key?is it the same password that we provide during the creation of certificate(in the questionnaire)?

Please be patient with me as I am trying to understand the concepts.
Thanks...
