How to Create secure TCP/IP Connection with SSL

Follow these step to  Create secure TCP/IP Connection with SSL 

1. openssl req -new -text -out server.req

Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key
writing new private key to 'privkey.pem'
Enter PEM pass phrase:1234567890
Verifying - Enter PEM pass phrase:1234567890
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank

Email Address []

Please enter the following 'extra' attributes
to be sent with your certificate request
A challenge password []:welcome123#
An optional company name []:National Center for Software Technology

2.openssl rsa -in privkey.pem -out server.key
Enter pass phrase for privkey.pem:1234567890
writing RSA key

3.rm privkey.pem

4.openssl req -x509 -in server.req -text -key server.key -out server.crt

5.chmod og-rwx server.key
