Generating an SSL key for rpasswdd

We're trying to use rpasswd/rpasswdd. I'm creating an SSL private key and certificate using the following
command:

openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -days 730 -out /etc/rpasswdd.pem -keyout /etc/rpasswdd.pem

I restart rpasswdd and execute the following command on another system:

rpasswd -a -h <SSL host> <username>

and the output is:

Trying <SSL host IP> port 774...

SSL connection using AES256-SHA

Server certificate:
subject: /C=CA/ST=Ontario/L=Toronto/O=FB Company/OU=Systems/CN=Systems Dept/emailAddress=me@xxxxxxx
issuer: /C=CA/ST=Ontario/L=Toronto/O=FB Company/OU=Systems/CN=Systems Dept/emailAddress=me@xxxxxxx

Server certificate is not ok: self signed certificate!

How do I resolve this issue and allow me to change passwords using rpasswd?

Thanks
