Asked by halfinhalfout on 2009-12-15

Would like to be able to check a box to enforce use of TLS/SSL for connections. To protect authentication info. Is that on the todo list?

https is supported, logout from mustard then insert https://identi.ca when creating user

At the moment (v 0.1.7.3) https is supported only with trusted CA, not with self-signed certificate.

The easy way to support all https is to ignore SSL warnings (unknown CA, certificate expired etc etc), but I'd like to implement a "show and confirm" dialog box (a little more complex)

What about adding a "Use SSL if available" checkbox in create user form?

0.1.7.4 added a "Force use of TLS/SSL" flag in account creation

Added a flag to force use of secure connection

Thanks macno, that solved my question.
