Can we put together a FAQ for how to create a client certificate with a WebId for every language? It is not quite so easy thing to do as it may seem. This could go up initially on the esw wiki, perhaps here
http://esw.w3.org/foaf+ssl/HOWTO 

Here is the code I use for creating Java certificates

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/clerezza/trunk/parent/ssl.keygen/base/src/main/java/org/apache/clerezza/ssl/keygen/bouncy/DefaultCertificate.java

This is part of the ssl.keygen libs 
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/clerezza/trunk/parent/ssl.keygen/

which are used for example by 

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/clerezza/trunk/parent/platform.accountcontrolpanel/platform.accountcontrolpanel.core

I think we could then also create a service where people can drop certificates and we can just check if the certificate is well formed. (is it a client certificate, does it have the right extensions set, ...)
