Create self signed certificate

Visual studio comes with an exquisite tool to create a self signed certificate which you can use for Exchange/IIS/ADFS/whatever you like.

makecert -r -pe -n "" -e 01/01/2020 -ss my -sr localMachine -sky exchange -sp "Microsoft RSA SChannel Cryptographic Provider" -sy 12

Note that this will store the certificate in your local machine certificate store but it’s marked as “private key exportable” (-pe) so you can export it from there.
