LE on personal platforms?


#1

Has anyone used LE for personal platforms? I have in mind three applications:

(1) DD-WRT
https login to a personal router. The one that comes with DD-WRT is considered “unsafe” by standard browsers. The LE would have to be prepared on a different Windows or Linux platform.

(2) Acronis
https to a standalone PC. The one that comes with Acronis Advanced B&R (which now is browser-based) is considered “unsafe” by standard browsers. Here too, the LE would have to be prepared on a different Windows or Linux platform.

(3) Personal Linux server
https open to the public. I now use Cloudflare certs @$5/month (required for even their free advanced security). Here, I would like to know if simply using https://certbot.eff.org to prepare an LE cert would displace or interfere with my current CF cert.

Hi,

For this service, I believe that the possibility to obtain one certificate is use domain name instead of IP address. (Since dd-wrt default use internal IP address to access, and use domain name would make all request to go through router, onto internet then go back… Which might not be good for some user. It also require additional setup…)

That’s fine… Certbot was used by many people like me. In personal servers.

If you use the LE certificate with your CF proxied domain, it won’t do anything to the visitor since all request are going through CF’s proxy. Won’t replace or interfere unless you setup your server’s vHosts incorrectly…

Thank you
