In many environments you can use ssl encryption, and you may skip the encryption because generating a cert or getting a lets encrypt cert would add more time to the thing your are working on. To overcome this security issue I wrote a small script to create a crt and key file.
#!/bin/bash # fast ssl cert without ca ENDPOINT=$1 openssl genrsa -out $ENDPOINT.key 2048 openssl req -new -x509 -key $ENDPOINT.key -out $ENDPOINT.crt -days 3650 -subj /CN=$ENDPOINT
./selfsigned.sh domain.tld Generating RSA private key, 2048 bit long modulus ..............+++ ....+++ e is 65537 (0x010001)
