Re: running test-suite over https

I considered generating the certificate but I am wary of draining the
system entropy. I don't know how much entropy generating an SSL
certificate requires but the testsuite doesn't need a high quality
certificate and it should avoid using entropy if possible. So I
embedded a pre-generated certificate in the script.
