A HTTPS To HTTP Reverse Proxy
While the reverse proxy and web server exchange data via plain HTTP, clients connecting to the reverse proxy communicate over a secure HTTPS connection.
As such, these connections are able to benefit from the security functions of SSL/TLS, such as data-in-transit encryption and host authentication.
This configuration makes perfect sense because, while client requests originating from the same internal network as the Web server can be somewhat safe, requests coming from the Internet should be treated with caution.
