Keep your connection secure

When connecting to Lantern with Postgres clients such as Python's psycopg2 or shell's psql command line tool, you can manually verify SSL certificates presented by your Lantern Cloud database.

By default, postgres clients run in sslmode=prefer which means the connection will be fully encrypted but your client will not verify the certificates provided by the server.

You can enforce certificate verification by specifying sslmode=verify-full. You can read more about supported Postgres SSL modes here

When verifying certificates, you can use the trusted certificate authority (CA) list to verify the server certificates. Alternatively, you can use this Lantern Cloud Root Certificate list
