Should I use https on my local self hosted services like Bitwarden, NextCloud and Jellyfin? I plan to have access to these services through a vpn when I’m outside home


@SonoMichele You can also just use a self-signed certificate and trust it on all your devices. Same security, same trust model (or maybe even better) and no hassle with CAs (although LetsEncrypt isn't much of a hassle anyway).

@tobtobxx I’ll create a self signed certificate as I can’t access my home server from outside so I can’t use let’s encrypt on a local domain
