NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more
Trial Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
mkcert is a convenient tool for creating locally trusted development certificates. Using certificates from real certificate authorities (CAs) for local development can be challenging if not impossible (for hosts such as example.test, localhost or 127.0.0.1). In such situations self-signed certificates may be your only option. mkcert lets you generate self-signed certificates and installs the local CA in the system root store. For anything other than local development and testing, we strongly recommend using certificates from real CAs to avoid trust issues.
