I'm investigating the idea of using Blazor WASM to build a retail application that would run on an office Intranet. The application would be installed on a given machine, to be accessed via browser from any of several machines on the LAN.
The biggest stumbling block I'm running into is the question of how to go about securing the channel.
The app itself would run as a Windows Service, listening on port 443 on one of the workstations, e.g. https://reception/. But how do we tell Blazor to use a self-signed TLS cert for that hostname?
If there's a better way to go about this, I'm all ears. I can't use Let's Encrypt certs, because neither the application nor its hostname will be exposed to the public Internet.
There is a glut of information on working with Blazor to build such an app, but most if not all demos run on localhost. That works fine for dev, but not for production (in a self-hosting scenario, anyway). There doesn't seem to be much discussion at all of this aspect of things.
How can we use a custom certificate for browser requests from the client to a Blazor WASM app?
