I like to understand ssl certificates and web browser security specifically when using Synology Diskstation Manager. While Quickconnect has https enabled, it appears that traffic won't be encrypted throughout all points of the interwebs through ultimately reaching the diskstation destination because Synology has some sort of proxy in between. It sounds like the same logic would apply when using their iphone apps too. That would be nice to confirm here.
Anyway, I obtained a certificate from GoDaddy to apply a DDNS ie mydiskstation.synology.me account but I discovered that I cannot install the certificate because I do not own the synology.me domain. I can set it up with that certificate if I have a domain; and I do. This requires port forwarding 5001
on the router but then I begin to look at simply creating self signed certificate. Sounds like this is fine but there's the potential albeit very unlikely with a man in attach if they somehow highjacked your DNS and pointed it to another Synology. Idunno, I don't understand the great appeal of third party certificates now know that the likely hood of that happening is very small. Also, maybe the self signed certificate isn't up to Chrome standards like the article mentions below. Any thoughts on all this?
Chrome doesn't like certain certificates
