I will explain you my need. I need an end to en encryption for my client
Client ->nginx/haproxy - https
nginx/haprody -> tomcat - https
So one way to do this is a layer 4 load balancing at nginx/haproxy
But What I am trying to do is to do a layer 7 encryption itself. So the
first ssl offloading will happen at the nginx/haproxy level. Then it
will be again encrypted and send to the underlaying tomcat. Then tomcat
will offload ssl again.
The reason for this is, I am creating my stack in amazon and we do not
want any kind of plane communication happening in amazon network.
So I am not really sure about the configuration which I can do on nginx
which will do the following:
1. Off load the ssl for the requests coming from client (users) - This
configuration is simple enough
2. encrypt the communication again and send to underlaying tomcats
Can I have an SSL from Client to Nginx and another between Nginx and
so it will be like
