  • You can use a self-signed certificate in some scenarios. Self-signed works if the client either does not verify it or can reach the CA and has a copy of the public CA certificate (and any other intermediate CAs in the chain). If your client can reach the CA you can just send a copy of the public CA certificate (and any other intermediate CA certificates in the chain) and they should be able to import all of these.

    For example, GXS supports self-sined certificates but I think this is because they do not verify it. This of course impacts your security.
