Sets SSL certificate and key to use.
We can then accept connections with TLS v1.2.
You can create your own SSL key and self signed certificate with openssl in the terminal:

openssl genpkey -out private_key.pem -algorithm RSA -pkeyopt rsa_keygen_bits:2048
Or with password: openssl genpkey -aes-256-cbc -algorithm RSA -out private_key.pem -pkeyopt rsa_keygen_bits:4096
openssl req -new -key private_key.pem -out device1.csr
openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in device1.csr -signkey private_key.pem -out certificate.crt

Alternatively you can use the web server as proxy to do SSL and forward the call it gets at e.g. https://domainname/webhook to http://domainname:xxxx internally with some random port number you picked. This way the web hook is not exposed directly to the outside, but stays behind the web server and the firewall.


Start a SSL HTTP Webhook:

Set Variable [ $$WebHooks ; Value: MBS("WebHook.Create") ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("WebHook.SetSSL"; $$WebHooks; "/Users/cs/WebHook/certificate.crt"; "/Users/cs/WebHook/private_key.pem") ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("WebHook.Listen"; $$WebHooks; 9999) ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("WebHook.SetScript"; $$WebHooks; Get(FileName); "WebHookReceived") ]
