    openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout sp-key.pem -out sp-cert.crt
    openssl pkcs8 -topk8 -inform PEM -outform PEM -nocrypt -in sp-key.pem -out sp-key-pkcs8.pem

    Copy content of file sp-key-pkcs8.pem into field SP Private Key, and content of file sp-cert.crt into field SP Cert
