What is the status of being able to handle HTTPS connections to the controller?

I have not looked at this much but was inquiring about it. The inquiry comes from what I'm hearing about the upcoming Android P OS. That OS is requiring all web connections be made via HTTPS and will not support HTTP. If that's the case, we won't be able to communicate with our controllers on Android P in their current state. I'm not sure we will be able to add HTTPS support to the wifi modules or the controller or if we have to proxy through an webserver and no longer communicate directly with the controller on P.

It's still a ways off of actually being implemented but it's in the pipeline and I wanted to get the discussion going now about it.

Not possible.
We don't have enough processing power to handle that.

ok. then the mqtt protocol will need to be the way things are handled in the future then.
i haven’t looked into this in great detail and hope the HTTPS enforcement is for web traffic and not for alternative/ other ports. i may have to dig into the documentation and fire up an emulator to test it out.

thanks for the info!
