Always use the generic domain (or subdomain of) in documentation.

If it’s necessary to utilize more than one domain please ask for specific feedback in any PR.


When including certificates in documentation always ensure they are valid for 1 year starting at Jan 1 00:00:00 1970. This ensures the certificate is not valid for multiple reasons.

In addition the guidance for Private Keys should be followed.

Private Keys

Always append invalid data to the END of the PEM block before the base64 padding = (if present). The suggested text is ^invalid DO NOT USE. This both has an invalid base64 character ^ and has information to communicate that users should not use the PEM block.
