How to manage certificate for https on application distrib (wodWebServer / wodWebServer.NET)

Hi Leonardo,

I'm not sure you can have generic certificate since this beats the purpose of the certificate itself. When installed, how will users access your web server? Through common hostname (such as localhost) or some other way? Will each name be specific to client's installation?

Basically, you shouldn't distribute private key with the installation since it's private - and if it's publicly visible then whole idea of using HTTPS for security loses that purpose.

I would be able to give more ideas if you explain whole idea of using HTTPS for your server, who and how will access it?

Regards,
Jasmine.

Thanks Jasmine ,

our users could access local with localhost, from private network using IP address, or from internet if they have a public IP. User will be themself server admin and client user of the server, application running telescope facilities and they need to use the web dashboard from local or remote. Max 1/2 user at times.

All the best
Leonardo
