SSL Support

To run ympd with SSL support:

  • create a certificate (key and cert in the same file), example:
# openssl req -x509 -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout key.pem -out cert.pem -days 1000 -nodes
# cat key.pem cert.pem > ssl.pem
  • tell ympd to use a webport using SSL and where to find the certificate:
# ./ympd -w "ssl://8081:/path/to/ssl.pem"
