Creation of SSL certificates

Can someone guide me as to how SSL certificates are created for a new AIX box? I am a novice to system administration.

Thanks in advance

If you have java installed, you can check for the "ikeyman" tool (X11 application!) to create and adminsiter ssl certificates; the command line tool should be "keytool"; entering "keytool" without parameters, you'll get the command syntax.

Code:
$> which ikeyman
/usr/java5_64/jre/bin/ikeyman
$> which keytool
/usr/java5_64/jre/bin/keytool

There is also the tool
Code:
gsk7cmd

which can be used to work on SSL keystores and also create certificates etc. Entering it without parameters you get the sytnax help. This tool is part of the package "gskta.rte 7.0.3.30".

If you have openSSL installed, you could just use "openssl"; there is plenty of syntax examples if you use your favourite search engine.
