I understand many home users would not care about using https for their iHome, so I am perfectly fine to keep the default as http, but it’s getting more and more common that https is a requirement (see https://www.digicert.com/blog/https-only-features-in-browsers). I got v1.6.0 and it seems to not have any method of using https.
Thus it would be nice to enable https. All it needs is to be able to upload a certificate, or the iHost creates a certificate and presents the CSR, which I can get signed, and then I can upload the signed certificate.
As a simple example how to implement it, look at RouterOS from Mikrotik: upload the private key file and the certificate, and enable https.
