Squid 2.5 Reverse Proxy with SSL


Hi All,

I have setup a Squid reverse proxy between my firewall and my webserver. I am using Squid-2.5.STABLE14-1.4E.el4_6.2 on a Centos 4.6 box with 2 nics.

Network Layout:

ISP <--> Firewall <--> SQUID <--> Webserver

It works fine with normal http, but I would like to implement an SSL conenction from the clients (https) to the internal webserver. Not really sure on how to go about this. Can I setup a certificate between the outside world and the nic facing the outside on Squid and just have a normal http connections between the internal Squid nic and the webserver?

Not really sure if it's possible to have the SSL certs on the physical webserver since Squid would have to know information inside the packets to be able to redirect.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

squid doesn't terminate SSL, you'd need to pass it through. you could instead use a second layer of apache servers runnign mod_proxy to do more of what you are after.
