Never worked with SSL before, but now I need to communicate with a web service from a Windows program using the open source LibCurl library. It supports SSL, but I have no idea what kind of certificate I need. Everything I have looked at is requiring domain name. I understand that for web server SSL, but this is for a certificate on a windows machines that are not part of a domain.
Any help would be immensely appreciated!
In your scenario, you likely don’t need a certificate. Only the web service does unless the authentication with that web service uses client certificates. And in that case, you don’t need a Let’s Encrypt certificate (or any public certificate) for that purpose.
It’s the same sort of situation with a web browser and a web server. The server has the certificate, not the client.
do you run the web service?
