Hi, love your youtube vids and appreciate all that you do.. Can you ‘please’ do a ‘really clear’ video on synology certificates! I’m referring to the ‘your site is not secure’ business . There are loads on YouTube but I mean a video that is not aimed at those who already know what they are doing with ddns/domain names/ etc. Whilst I do ‘understand what a domain name is it is the ‘Let’s Encrypt’ certificate I’m referring to with a proper before/after demonstration, other vids finish with eg “so click apply and there you go, bye” I’m a home user with a 416 Play NAS for storing family stuff on to share eg pics with family living elsewhere, I have a registered domain name but don’t use it for a website, just the email function. Many thanks
Yes, we may make a video about this.
But all SSL certificates are encrypting the data transfer between NAS and a computer. Just that self-signed certificates appear like ‘your site is not secure’ because browsers warn people of a possible scam. If you visit a shop with a self-signed certificate, you can not trust this. But if you self encrypts a route to your NAS you know it is safe. When you send money to someone you want some third party to issue the SSL certificate, so you could trust this.
With a NAS - all these warnings are just informative and mean nothing bad.
I hope this helps.
