We use mkcert tool to make secure localhost connections. For mkcert we need Go language installed.


wget https://dl.google.com/go/go1.14.2.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
sudo tar -C /usr/local -xvf go1.14.2.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
cat >> ~/.bashrc << 'EOF'
export GOPATH=$HOME/go
export PATH=/usr/local/go/bin:$PATH:$GOPATH/bin
source ~/.bashrc
go version
sudo ln -sf /usr/local/go/bin/{go,godoc,gofmt} /usr/local/bin/
apt install libnss3-tools

cd /opt
git clone https://github.com/FiloSottile/mkcert && cd mkcert
go build -ldflags "-X main.Version=$(git describe --tags)"

#remove previously generated cert stuff if exist
cd ~/.local/share/mkcert/
rm rootCA-key.pem
rm rootCA.pem

#stay in this dir and generate new certs
/opt/mkcert/mkcert -install "hangdevice" "hangdevice.ffcmesh" "yourduet" "yourduet.ffcmesh" "localhost" ""
mv hangdevice+*-key.pem trikarus-key.pem
mv hangdevice+*.pem trikarus.pem

#get the output for client (Firefox, Chrome, ...)
cat rootCA.pem
cat hangdevice+5-key.pem
cat hangdevice+5.pem

#the root CA can also be found by
ll /etc/ssl/certs | grep  mkcert_development_CA_+

#put the generated certs into target dir
cp trikarus-key.pem /etc/ssl/private/
cp trikarus.pem /etc/ssl/certs/

#Using Root CA, cert and key you get the complete bundle

Import custom cert into Windows client certificate storage

Import custom cert into FireFox

Import custom cert into Google Chrome
