Cloudflare Origin CA vs Let's Encrypt

Hi,

Since you recommend Cloudflare CA over Thrid Party ones here: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/360024787372 I wonder if there’s a difference in speed or security.

Maybe the handshake is longer or something like that? Thanks

None. The only difference is, Origin certificates are not trusted by browsers and only work in a proxied context (well, they also work in a non-proxied one, but you then get a warning message) whereas certificates from public CAs are trusted by browsers.

As long as you proxy your site Origin certificates will be easier to manage.
