I hope you can help with this because I am a little bit confused.
I’m running apache 2.2 httpd and want to communicate using ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse to a secured server which is also HTTPS SSL.
Outside world ==> https ssl Apache 2.2 httpd (localhost) ==> Secured server Https ssl (domain.com) I am the middle man here.
What exactly do I need from them (domain.com) in order for me to configure Apache 2.2 httpd-ssl.conf properly? Do I only need their public key? I don’t think I also need their certificate, otherwise I can generate their private key. I don’t think that’s handy…and insecured.
This is my current configuration for when the outside world visit the middle man apache server.
LoadModule sslmodule modules/modssl.so LoadModule proxymodule modules/modproxy.so LoadModule proxyhttpmodule modules/modproxyhttp.so
<VirtualHost *:8443> ServerName localhost.localdomain SSLEngine on SSLCertificateFile /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl/server.crt SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl/server_priv.pem
ProxyRequests off SSLProxyEngine on Loglevel debug
