Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Obtaining SSL certificate for your website

I am writing an app for tablets and smartphones as an hobby project and I am not a professional coder so please excuse the simple/noob questions!

The app will connect to an website and use a REST API to sync data across devices. I am also developing the website on my own. I have got a simple Web API running and I can do GET, PUT etc from my app. It's all in HTTP plain text at the moment.

- What is the best practice to encrypt the comms between clients and the web server? Is an SSL certificate the way to proceed?

- I registered the website under my own name and used the whois privacy option to hide the details from the public. So will I have issues with obtaining an SSL cert for a domain that is registered to an individual? Do I have to remove whois privacy for the SSL provider to do due diligence before issuing the cert?

- Can I do all this instead with a self-issued certificate? The website will only be used for pointing the users to the mobile applications.
