Quickbox "images" ssl question


#1

This is simply a question regarding security for not only the cloudbit image, but any seedbox image I suppose.

If the image is pre-existing, wouldn’t all the SSL certificates have the same private key? Maybe that’s not such a big deal, but I’m just curious :slight_smile:

You should generate new SSL keys via SSH

CD to an accesible location on your VM and run this command, the CSR can be used to request a new SSL cert.

openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout server.key -out server.csr

No SSL keys have been installed on the image but if you are unsure please generate a new one.
