Use the following steps to create a temporary X.509 certificate for certificate authentication:
  1. Create a certificate to act as your Root Certificate Authority
makecert -n "CN=RootCATest" -r -sv RootCATest.pvk RootCATest.cer
  1. Create a Certificate Revocation List file from the Root Certificate
makecert -crl -n "CN=RootCATest" -r -sv RootCATest.pvk RootCATest.crl
  1. Install your Root Certificate Authority on the server and client machines. Use MMC to install the RootCATes.cer on client and server machines in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store
  2. Install the Certificate Revocation List file on the server and client machines. Use MMC to install the RootCATes.crl on client and server machines in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities
  3. Create and install your temporary service certificate
makecert -sk MyKeyName -iv RootCATest.pvk -n "CN=tempCert" -ic RootCATest.cer -sr currentuser -ss my -sky signature –pe
