Cloud flare ssl option


#1

Hello,
Before I added my website to Cloudflare, I had already been using Let’s Encrypt ssl. Which SSL option shall I choose? Full or Full (strict)?


#2

You can and should use Full (strict), as long as your Let’s Encrypt certificates are valid and configured correctly.

(If they’re not valid and configured correctly, it would be best to fix them.)


#3

If you are going to maintain your LE certificate, Full (strict) is
slightly more secure in that it protects against man-in-the-middle
(MITM) attacks. But it adds a point of failure too, you must ensure your
LE certificate stays renewed and valid.

If it were me, I’d use strict.
