Can IIS do HTTPS?

I want to move one of my sites to a secure server, and was wondering if IIS can use the HTTPS:// protocol.

Anyone know?

thanks

Yes, all you need to do is install a SSL certificate on the site and it will turn on the options for it.

And how would I do that?

You need to usually buy one. You can make the file yourself but unless it is signed by a third party that is listed as trusted in the browser that window asking you if you want to continue to a secure site is going to come up.

If you want to make it yourself you can with certificate server, which is a part of windows 2k/2k3 server.

Otherwise you gotta buy it from someone like Verisign, however there are cheaper alternatives.
