Re: [squid-users] Quick question on using squid as a reverse proxy

Does Apache + mod_security allow reverse proxying to https servers? The server is using both http and https currently, and I don't know enough about the actual server to know if doing everything over http is feasible.

Does squid do reverse proxying for https servers? Does it have anything like mod_security? I've read a little about squidguard... is that something I want to look at?

More likely you would want to use Apache with mod_security as reverse proxy.
Exactly made for that purpose.
