QuestionOpenVPN certificate / connection safety Pin
Joan M26-Nov-20 5:23

Hello all,

INTRODUCTION
I have a NAS at my office.
To connect to all it's services when I'm on the road I use OpenVPN.
When I configured OpenVPN server in my NAS it created a certificate that I had to paste into my laptop OpenVPN configuration file.
This said, I connect to my NAS using their DYNDNS alike service as target for my OpenVPN and a then I use a set of network units to access my NAS files.
I have not installed an extra certificate from Lets Encrypt (or any other provider) into my NAS.

QUESTION
While using OpenVPN, the traffic between my laptop and my NAS is encrypted using AES-255 (as configured in my OpenVPN server).
If I understand it well, I should be protected as any traffic between both devices is encrypted.

Is that right?

Thinking about the password manager, I'm currently in doubt with KeePass and BitWarden (I could host the latter in my own NAS).

But of course, if the OpenVPN connection is not safe enough, it is a stupid move to put the password manager in my NAS accessing it when I am on the go.

Thank you in advance!
