I'm not sure this really belongs with the box project. There's lots of
different SSL based services which need certificates, box is not really
any different to them.

You should be able to use any CA for the certificates. I use cacert.org
which is a free/open CA for apache and other things. That might be a
good solution for box too, though I haven't tried it yet.
