In this second part of the article series on using the OpenSSL library in linux, described here is the process of creating an intermediate certificate authority (CA) certificate for a self-signed certificate generation workflow.
Please note that the passwords and the method to pass them to OpenSSL used here are for educational purposes alone. They are very weak and are visible using tools such as ```ps```.
In production, please remember to update the passwords as well as the technique used for passing them accordingly.
Feel free to revisit the first part of this article series on creating a root CA certificate by following the link here.
