    Anyone have tried using CloudFlare Origin CA? Read more about it here: CloudFlare Origin CA

    I've tried using it on my site:

    After creating the certificate, I could use the same certificate and private key for all my domains which were sub-domains of my root domain.
    Another benefit of using this, you can finally choose Full (strict) encryption:

    Previously, you could only choose Full encryption (not strict) if you used locally generated certificate, but now, not anymore :D

    There's no change with Qualys' SSL Labs result since it's behind CloudFlare (so only the the CloudFlare's side is visible to the tester), but I'm sure it's more secure now :)
