You can create a script to generate a CA-signed certificate and a private key stored in the files <filename>.crt and <finename>.key, respectively.

The genrsa command generates a CA key. The CA key should be encrypted. You can specify an encryption method with the command such as aes256. For example,

openssl genrsa -out ca.key 4096
openssl req -key ca.key -new -x509 -days 365 -sha256 -extensions v3_ca -out ca.crt -subj "/C=US/ST=CA/L=Palo Alto/O=OS3/OU=Eng/CN=${host}"
openssl req -out ${filename}.csr -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout ${filename}.key -subj "/C=US/ST=CA/L=Palo Alto/O=OS3/OU=Eng/CN=${host}"
openssl x509 -req -days 360 -in ${filename}.csr -CA ca.crt -CAkey ca.key -CAcreateserial -out ${filename}.crt -sha256
