Forward external https through Linux box to http local 192.168* addy?


So I got an additional set of cameras, and they apparently only support http, not https. I view my home cameras on my Android via https with authentication of users on the cameras, but the additional ones only support http, but have a schedule to only record during certain periods of time when I am not home, so I wish to keep them in the mix.

I don't wish to send plain text passwords, but still want to view the new cameras too.

Is it possible to FW http through https in Apache on my Linux box to the camera just to keep the traffic secure (well the auth, at least)?

I can't seem to find the right keywords for Google to give me a hand.

Even a link would be greatly beneficial.

What you need is to configure the https server (apache) as a reverse proxy for the backend http servers/cameras
