Connect to Squid proxy in Firefox via SSL?


#1

I am looking to connect to my private Squid proxy server via SSL from Firefox browser.
Right now TCP CONNECT with proxy password is sent in plain text by Firefox over the hostile network, which i want to avoid. So i want to get a certificate that FireFox will trust without manually importing an openssl generated one and establish SSL before proxy password is sent.
I have multiple IP addresses i need to connect to.
Will LetsEncrypt certificate be right for my use case?

lets encrypt doesnt issue ip based certificates.

if you connect VIA ip then self signed certificates or an openssl based CA is probably the best way to go

otherwise something like a VPN or an SSH tunnel might be a better idea
