There is not one-stop support for it, but it should be doable.

lib/public_key/test/erl_make_certs.erl has code that generates certificates.

You would have to parse the CSR (lib/public_key/src/pubkey_pem.erl seems to
have support for it) and construct the newly signed certificate with the
code from erl_make_certs.
