Creating SSL certificates is a common task done in web application infrastructures, so a rake task is provided to generate certificates. These certificates are stored here by the ssl_cert task.

Configure the values used in the SSL certificate by modifying config/rake.rb.

To generate a certificate set for a new monitoring server, for example:

rake ssl_cert

Once the certificates are generated, copy them into the cookbook(s) where you want to use them.

cp certificates/* cookbooks/COOKBOOK/files/default

In the recipe for that cookbook, create a cookbook_file resource to configure a resource that puts them in place on the destination server.

cookbook_file '/etc/apache2/ssl/'
  owner 'root'
  group 'root'
  mode 0600
