Do you need a cert to make a gem?

I’m trying to learn how to make my own gem. I just wondered about
certificates. Do I need it, if it’s just for my own use on my own
server?

No, a certificate is only required if you want to sign your gem, and
signing a gem, especially when used privately, is completely optional.

packages?

Best place to start is gem help cert.
