    I have a web application on iis local and i want to enable ssl on it.

    I set the ssl method with the self-signed certificate. When I connect to it from another system, the browser will tell me that it is not safe.

    How can I set up a certificate of authenticity?

    Self-signed certificates aren't trusted by browsers because they are generated by your server, not by a CA

    And you could perhaps have a try https://letsencrypt.org/ to get one. Try https://gooroo.io/GoorooTHINK/Article/16420/Lets-Encrypt-Azure-Web-Apps-the-Free-and-Easy-Way/21872#.XFQx-WxYaUk (the first part is for IIS, it must be automated because certifcates are valid for 90 days).

    I want to use https to receive notification on Chrome. Is there another way?

    Due to nature of Certificates and how Browser makers decided to deal with, there is no other way.
    On the other hand, what browsers do is just an notification, user should decide to go ahead or not.
    In begining of e-commerce, was recommended move up to https to have communication encrypted and some privacy, browsers became to show a "locker", but it showed on any https, later browser makers decided to improve and created actual notification.

    There are option on browser config, where you can set your https url as trusted, I think this set can get rid the notification
