I’m a little stuck figuring out the best way to create a certificate for my application.
I have a web application (server) that I run on my hardware (windows PC). I connect to this and control my hardware from an iOS (Safari) browser via a local network.
I’ve tested self signed certificates and my application works well (I need SSL as I have things like geolocation that iOS needs ssl to support). The only issue with my self signed cert is that it shows a security warning and I have to click through.
I have dozens of these setups around the place, all 1 to 1 connections on local networks between windows server and iOS client.
I’m wondering what is the best certificate to buy, Ideally I don’t want to have these expire in 1 year as my devices are not always on the internet and might not be updated regularly and I don’t wan’t customer support issues down the track when certs expire.
Any thoughts on a CA provider that would support my needs?
