All ipsw.me does is sends you to a link to Apple's servers which is where the ipsw file is downloaded from. It's safe to use.

OK, ipsw.me send me a file with none SSL link: http://appldnld.apple.com/
That's why i confused.
Well, it's directly from Apple, so it's basically what Apple provides. Also, incorrect or somehow modified files that aren't officially recognized by Apple and aren't specifically compatible with your device wouldn't get installed even if you try to install them.
