Can I use Keychain to manage my SSL certificates for the Apache web server on Tiger Client?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Montana Mike,

Yes indeed. Keychain is the preferred place to store certificates.

There is also help available online on making your own certificates...

The only thing that is lacking is that apache itself can't look into the keychain to use the certs. You will have to get a third party app or follow this article to place export the certs from Keychain and place them on disk where httpd and mod_ssl looks for them...
