Self signed cert is the way to go for that. Since the target audience is
small, letting them know that the 'snake oil' cert is valid shouldn't
pose too difficult a problem. Other than that, we use GoDaddy at work
for certs. I won't use them personally, after the whole fyodor incident
(search Slashdot for 'MySpace' and 'GoDaddy' and 'Fyodor' for the full
story). Gandi may also provide that service, but at the current exchange
rate, that's going to be ugly.

Right new I've self-signed a certificate, but is there a more legitimate way to do it without spending an exorbitant amount of money?  Some time ago I recall hearing of a free certificate authority but I don't recall the name and do not want to go to an unscrupulous "vendor."
