Question about OpenSSL & pfSense
I am looking into setting up OpenVPN and also interested in SSL certificates for a few other internal intranet pages and sites as well as a few other applications.
I am running 2.2-RELEASE (i386) and I understand that pfSense has had OpenSSL integrated for quite some time. Question is: should I do the research and learn to set up OpenSSL properly within pfSense or should I run a dedicated OpenSSL server (on FreeBSD) to handle everything from pfSense & VPN to https and other needs?
If I run OpenSSL on pfSense will it provide certs for everything behind it or only for VPNs?
I admit I've not done enough reading up on this at the pfSense Docs and other. Simply looking to know if it would be better to run a dedicated OpenSSL server or try and run it within pfSense. I am usually of the mindset that dedicated hardware/machines are usually better, but if pfSense is purpose-built to handle my needs then it would be a waste of resources to dedicate (virtual) hardware and resources.
Thanks in advance,
