Ever since my first seedbox, I’ve always been provided with an SSL certificate. Whether that’s from the seedbox provider, or through lets encrypt.
My question is, Why if I use a self signed cert does Chrome have a bitch fit, but if I use letsencrypt it’s all relaxed. Surely from the encryption perspective, a self signed cert would be better because NOBODY would have access to the private key etc.
As for Identity, if it’s because public certs verify identity in some way, then why is Lets Encrypt able to get round this, I didn’t verify my identity go get the encryption.
I’m not complaining, I love not having to see that horrible WARNING, CLICK TO PROCEED warning in chrome, I’m just genuinely curious how the industry got to this point.
