SSL certificate on section.io and origin web server


#1

Question from a user:

Why should I run an SSL certificate on both section.io and my origin server?

You need SSL on both to achieve end to end encryption.
User traffic is encrypted between their browser and section.io platform using SSL, and traffic from section.io to the origin web application is encrypted using SSL. These certificates do not need to match.

To make certificate management easier, section.io provides free SSL certificates that automatically renew.

You can use any certificate at origin and section.io can be configured to accept it.
