Is is possible to implement a secure communication for API call over inthernet. For LAN it's ok but when using from the web it's not interesting to use the API.

https://ddns.address:1178/zwave/activateSceneGet?password=changeme&sceneName=TestScene

or 

If secured I would feel more comfortable to use IFTTT maker channel to call scene from the web:
URL: https://ddns.address:1178/zwave/activateScene
Method: PUT
Content Type: application/json
Body: { "password": "changeme", "sceneName": "Test", "activate": 1 }

Axial combined with IFTTT, would be great if secured.

Thanks, I'll make a note of this request. The tricky part is going to be the certificate since this "web server" is hosted on your home computer, getting one that's signed might be interesting.
