Subject [users@httpd] HTTPS(SSL) reverse proxying.
Date Mon, 31 Jan 2005 21:40:41 GMT
Am starting to look at reverse proxying...

And from what I understand and read, I would like to confirm my thoughts using HTTPS (SSL)
and reverse proxying.

>From what I understand reverse proxying works something like this....

Client <---- HTTP Request ----> Reverse Proxy <---- HTTP Request ----> Backend

So https would work like...

Client <---- HTTPS Request ----> Reverse Proxy <---- HTTP Request ----> Backend

So it would just be the case of enabling mod_ssl on the reverse proxy and not having to worry
about CONNECT  and that the reverse proxy would handle all HTTPS requests?
