I tried to create ASP.NET Core 2.1 project in my Visual Studio 2017 and was able to see "Enable https" option

While creating New project select properties properly


After creating the project, right click on ProjectName inside Solution explorer, and select "Debug" tab you should see this option


I am using Visual studio 2017 community version, in which I have installed everything in .NET Core and Web.

If you can't see this option this means you are using ASP.NET Core 1.1 in your project, such option does not exist in an ASP.NET Core (1.1) project, under web server settings the only available option is AppURL textbox.

If you are running core 1.x in Visual Studio 2017, you should be able to change the "sslPort": 0 line in the launchSettings.json file to whatever port number you would like to use for SSL. This effectively changes the bindings in the .\vs\config\applicationhost.config file
