Create an SSL Certificate for Use with IIS

The tutorial below lists the steps to generate an SSL certificate for use with IIS. The certificate is created using OpenSSL. Pretty straightforward and works as per instructions. Includes only two small downloads - OpenSSL light distribution and Visual C++ 2008 redistributable from Microsoft. Links provided in the tutorial.
Importing into IIS7 is pretty easy. In the server options go to Server Certificates, create a request. Then generate a certificate using the request. Come back to IIS Manager and Complete Certificate Request. Easy.
