There's a great Makefile in openssl package on RHEL. Just go into
/usr/share/ssl/certs dir and run make:

This makefile allows you to create:
 o public/private key pairs
 o SSL certificate signing requests (CSRs)
 o self-signed SSL test certificates

To create a key pair, run "make SOMETHING.key".
To create a CSR, run "make SOMETHING.csr".
To create a test certificate, run "make SOMETHING.crt".
To create a key and a test certificate in one file, run "make
SOMETHING.pem".

To create a key for use with Apache, run "make genkey".
To create a CSR for use with Apache, run "make certreq".
To create a test certificate for use with Apache, run "make testcert".

Examples:
 make server.key
 make server.csr
 make server.crt
 make stunnel.pem
 make genkey
 make certreq
 make testcert
