Get And Install SSL Certificate

If you are willing to help hiproxy to write documentation, please contact, thank you!

Hiproxy can generate its own root certificate. You can think it as a CA (Hiproxy Custom CA). If a https request need hiproxy to forward, hiproxy would use its own root certificate to generate automatically a secure certification of that https request.

Hiproxy own root certificate is not trusted by OS, therefore, you have to install the root certificate by manual to let OS know it as trusted one.

Download The Certificate

As soon as hiproxy is started (suppose the port number is 5525), you can go to get the root certificate of Hiproxy Custom CA.
