HTTPS REST API actions
« on: February 26, 2020, 12:09:34 PM »
I’m wanting to setup Firebase and Unity with Playmaker. Beings there’s to good secure method of server data handling I can find with Playmaker I was thinking of going the HTTPS method. I’m also open to any suggestions of alternative secure methods.

Duh Paden, it might be helpful to give the project details that need a secure database. I'm making a therapy related app for depressed humans that needs to have secured information for it's users. I'm guessing HTTPS is the fastest way but having something like Firebase hooked up directly would be best eventually.

I’m also not against using the Parse actions that were created a little while ago, the only problem is I’ve tried to get that working before and was met with a bunch of errors. I’m also not sure about security.

Hi,

 Use https indeed. SSL is the only good way to secure internet communication. but as always, if someone is serious about stealing data, he won't try to do that brute force. He will either spy directly on your computer or directly on your server...

Bye,
