Cloudflare configuration Authenticated Origin Pulls

Authenticated Origin Pulls is an additional security feature of Cloudflare which can be used on supported platform.

Normally, SSL helps to ensure that the client can verify the identity of the server (e.g. a browser to a website). It doesn’t allow the server to verify the identity of the client. With the Authenticated Origin Pulls, a hosting server can verify that the client connection was actually secured by Cloudflare.

However, our hosting does not use or support this feature. Unless you’re hosting something somewhere else where they do use Authenticated Origin Pulls, this announcement is not relevant to you.

In other words, you probably don’t need to do anything. You can leave your SSL settings exactly as they were.
