It's purely depends on your organization's requirement. Normally we use self signed for test environments and certificate from a valid cert authority for production instance to avoid the certificate warnings

For self generated certificate, you can start from https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.0/Security/Self-signcertificatesforSplunkWeb.
