SSL Termination

What’s the recommended way to add ssl to the server. I see that I can provide the cert and key in config file, but the Description also says that it is NOT recommended for production use.

Do I need to terminate SSL on load balancer, or write a wrapper to terminate SSL and then pass the data to the game server?


Hello Gupta - you’re correct, the best path is to use a load balancer to handle SSL termination. It’s how we handle it in our Managed Cloud as well. This reduces the computational burden on Nakama as well as improving security.
