Since Mifos X Android Client connects to your Mifos X Platform via HTTPS (e.g https://demo.mifosx.in), there's a dependency of the client on a valid SSL certificate. Under these circumstances, there's often a need to test out the client without a valid certificate purchased from the certifying authority. This article provides some practical methods you can use to create your own SSL certificate using OpenSSL.

Firstly, the reason Mifos X uses SSL authentication is so that the packets sent across the (insecure) Internet get encrypted via the SSL encryption, that's why it's called HTTPS (HTTP over SSL).
