Because none of the people involved with writing that mediaproxy documentation have ever used openssl to generate certificates and no one knows the sequence of commands you need to run of the top of their head. We found the process of generating certificates in the command line with openssl to be unnecessarily complicated and we didn’t brother to learn/document it. That’s why we provided a way to do it using a program that wraps openssl and hides the complicated details in a few easy steps in a friendly GUI.

As mentioned before the program is still available in debian/ubuntu and if you run a distro that doesn’t have it packaged, you can still find it here:


If for whatever reason you do not want to do it the way it is documented but prefer to do it with openssl commands directly, you have to either figure it out yourself, or wait for someone that has the knowledge to come along and answer your question, because we do not have the answer/example you are looking for. However, if you figure it out, I’d be more than happy to include the description of generating certificates using openssl into the documentation.
