These days, running your apps over HTTPS is pretty much required. so you need an SSL certificate to encrypt the connection between your app and a user's browser. I was recently trying to create a self-signed certificate for use in a Linux development environment, to serve requests with ASP.NET Core over SSL when developing locally.
