Making Secured Connection Using Lighttpd Web Server
I have cross compiled and configured lighttpd server on my PXA270 ARM board. I am able to login to this server through http connection. Everything is working OK for me.
Now I need to have secured connection to this web server using https. I studied some topic related to SSL. I have openssl package dynamic library compiled for ARM board. I am stucked at a point on how to configure lighttpd server and I got some useful information on this link: Howto: Linux Lighttpd SSL (Secure Server Layer) Https Configuration And Installation
I am not clear, about certification authority CA. Do I need to send a certificate to CA? Is this mandatory? Is there any other way to make it secure?
