Subject: example ssl certificate removed 
I removed the example ssl certificate from the midas git repository (ssl_cert.pem). Now every midas 
installation must generate their own certificate - because to have any security at all each encryption 
private key has to be unique (and it has to be secret).

The command for generating a self-signed certificate is printed by mhttpd on startup:

openssl req -new -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -sha256 -out ssl_cert.csr -keyout ssl_cert.key; openssl 
x509 -req -days 365 -sha256 -in ssl_cert.csr -signkey ssl_cert.key -out ssl_cert.pem; cat 
ssl_cert.key >> ssl_cert.pem
