How to generate server certificate for Kibana?



I am reading through the docs here:

Under point 4, it says to generate a server certificate for Kibana.

How do I do this? Is it the exact same steps for generating a node certificate for Elasticsearch?

It means generate a TLS/SSL certificate in the general sense. Using the certificate generator bundled with elasticsearch is an option but it won't be signed by a default trusted certificate authority. If you want this accessible from the web and to not display a trust error you'll want to get it signed by an authority (letsencrypt is commonly used, and provides free certificates). If you're on a closed network with the CA added to all the machines then creating your own is fine.
