Hi Robin

I am not sure how this is any benefit over the self-signed root certs that I now use?

Except for the fact that these are a root cert as well and don't use any CA trust chain.
To be able to validate this cert, I have to load it as a CA cert on the validating side.
Which isn't bad perse.

I've used openssl as mentioned here to create my certs:
