Thread: Official repositories over https?

  1. #1

    Default Official repositories over https?

    My want is to hide the openSUSE server name and which packages I get when I do the the system update, so https repositories are required, what is the URL of them?

    Without looking at mirrors,
    It's likely your existing repositories are already HTTPS

    You can inspect the URLs of your currently configured repos with the following command, and if you'd like open those URLs in a web browser
    Code:
    zypper lr -d

    To be honest, I don't see the use / benefit of the repos on https. The only thing one does, is get files from the server, there is no user input, no interaction with software / forms on the server. Which means that https would only mean some extra load on the servers with no real benefit.

    Https is only the chosen transport protocol.
    It might be preferred for its well known and easy way to traverse edge security.
    Main known disadvantage is that it's very bad for very large files and the larger the file the worse performance but for anything kilobytes to maybe 3MB in size, it's fairly performant and packages are usually not larger.

    If there are any questions about use or what you are looking at, provide an exact example and what was unclear about it.
