Secure Proxy

TLS terminator that takes all https requests, strips of the tls, and forwards the request over http to a router service

Installation

Clone the repository. In the root directory of the repository, execute the following

node secure-proxy.js --config test/config.json

This will start the secure proxy server using a self-signed certificate. The test/config.json settings will make the secure proxy server forward all traffic to a router server at

  • host: localhost
  • port: 4000

Configuration

A /path/to/config.json file path can be supplied as a --config argument when running the secure-proxy.js file

config.json should contain at least the following

{
  "router": {
    "host": "127.0.0.1",
    "port": 4000
  },
  "tls": {
    "keyFilePath": "/path/to/key.pem",
    "certFilePath": "/path/to/cert.pem"
  }
}

You can also specify the configuration options as command line paramters

node secure-proxy.json --router:host="127.0.0.1" --router:port=4000 --tls:keyFilePath="/path/to/key.pem" --tls:certFilePath="/path/to/cert.pem" --tls:port=443

Logging

By default the secure proxy will log to the console. If you wish to send your log data to loggly, specify a loggly input token in your config.json file

{
  "loggly": {
    "inputToken": "loggly input token here"
  },
  "router": {
    "host": "127.0.0.1",
    "port": 4000
  },
  "tls": {
    "keyFilePath": "/path/to/key.pem",
    "certFilePath": "/path/to/cert.pem"
  }
}
