You must request a certificate from a trusted certificate authority (CA) and configure Workflow Manager Server to use it. This can be a domain certificate issued by your organization or a CA-signed certificate.

Portal for ArcGIS also includes a preconfigured self-signed certificate. Because you will federate Workflow Manager Server with an ArcGIS Enterprise portal, request a certificate from a trusted CA and configure the portal to use it.
