There is no confusion. You can't do that. There is no SSL variant of the AJP protocol.

For the same reason.

No. That should have been the first question.

None, see above.

Note : what you /can/ do, is to use mod_jk to pass all relevant SSL information about the

original client<->Apache connection, to Tomcat, via HTTP headers.

Additional note : of course, if you would really must do this, you could still run the 
mod_jk-to-Tomcat connection over an SSL tunnel.  But that would be something set up 
totally outside of Apache, Tomcat and their configuration.

browser <-- HTTPS -->  apache + mod_jk -> localhost:localport1

localport1 <-- SSL tunnel --> remoteport1 --> remote AJP port 8009 --> Tomcat
