SoftAP with HTTPS

Hey Particlers,

I was wondering if anyone has managed to or knows where I could find out about setting up and serving the IP (e.g. over HTTPS.

With my amateur knowledge I’ve found this header file which said it the API for the HTTP/HTTPS server.

But I’m a tad stuck where to go next. Any help, advice or examples would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!


It is not possible to use the SoftAP web server in TLS/SSL (https) mode. It’s not enabled because it would not fit on the STM32F205 flash on the Photon and P1.

Hi @rickkas7,

Thanks for the reply! Are there any Particle devices that support HTTPS using SoftAP?

Could you also let me know what variation of the STM32F205 is in use?

How much memory does it use up and is the device missing?


The Photon and P1 are the only devices that support SoftAP. They contain a STM32F205RGY6 processor.

The only way you could fit TLS/SSL SoftAP support on the device would be to remove all of the Particle functionality and treat it as a bare BCM43362 with STM32F205. That would be difficult and at that point, you’d be better off just using an ESP32.
