Generating a signing certificate for iOS developement on Windows is done using a combination of Apple's Developer site and the Unreal iOS Configuration Wizard (iPhonePackager) application (Engine\Binaries\DotNET\IOS\IPhonePackager.exe) provided with Unreal Engine.
If you have previously developed iOS applications on a Mac but want to use Unreal Engine on a Windows PC to develop your iOS game, you can skip this step and export your certificate to a .p12 file from Keychain to use with the Unreal iOS Configuration Wizard.
To generate your certificate request:
  1. Navigate to your Engine\Binaries\DotNET\IOS\ directory and run iPhonePackager.exe.
  2. Provisioning is project-specific. When prompted, select the .uproject file for your project to associate it with the iPhonePackager application and click Open.
