I used the same setup for openssl from here:

openssl genrsa -out server_key.pem 2048

Certificate Signing Request:
openssl req -new -key server_key.pem -out server_csr.pem

openssl x509 -req -days 1825 -in server_csr.pem -signkey server_key.pem -out server_cert.pem

My launch-file-arguments:

  <arg name="port" default="9090" />  
  <arg name="address" default="" />
  <arg name="ssl" default="true" />
  <arg name="certfile" default="/home/user/ssl/server_cert.pem" />
  <arg name="keyfile" default="/home/user/ssl/server_key.pem" />
  <arg name="authenticate" default="false" />
