One option is to setup your on Certificate Server and issue your own certificates. This is an install option in Windows 2000 Server and later.(Perhaps in earlier OSs but this is what I'm running.) This is viable if the 60 clients have reason to "trust" your organization as a root certificate authority. You can also issue your own server certificate as well. This works well if trust is established with your clients. This whole scheme depends upon the degree of trust in the certificate authority, if you don't trust the CA, don't install their certificates!
