            Self Signed Bypass

            The reason Chrome doesn’t trust this by default is that it has no way to verify that the certificate is being sent by the server that generated the key, and therefore can’t ensure that the server actually is the one that the certificate claims it is.

            So when you go to the site, you get the scary looking screen that warns you that your connection might not actually be secure (because self-signed certificates are more vulnerable to a man-in-the-middle attack).
