HTTPS/SSL request load balancing
May 08, 2009 01:30PM
Hi,

I'll apologise in advance! I'm very new to nginx (about 3 hours now) and this is very much a Friday afternoon question (I'm hoping there'll be a nice reply waiting for me on Monday). I have a question about load balancing HTTPS requests, it appears to me that in order for nginx to handle https you must supply it with the relevant certificates and keys. Does this mean tha nginx will be decrypting the https message before forwarding it to the required location? I don't really want the overhead of this decryption in the load balancer so really need to know what's going on here.

Thanks in advance for any help.
Mike

Hello,

I'm not very skilled with https but I don't think it would do so : certificate/key is only useful for the client/nginx request processing.

You may already have found your answer on the internet ;)
