I was looking at these 2 tutorials on how to set up a sync service for Firefox:
And noticed how both didn't go into details about putting it behind SSL. Is SSL maybe not neccessary in this scenario because the data (bookmarks, passwords, etc.) is encrypted anyways? Or will this still expoxe the communication that takes place prior to the data-exchange, that is, my sync-server credentials?
(Sidenote, this is just for personal use, so no need to worry about handling a large load, etc.)
