Nginx SSL configuration guide
So far in the “Introduction to Nginx” course we have installed the Nginx server on Linux, discussed its configuration options, we saw how to integrate it with the Apache web server and we performed Load balancing.
In this lesson, we will focus on Nginx’s SSL configuration. The SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol was created to ensure secure transactions between web servers and browsers (using secure pages). SSL is supported by the Nginx server. We will see how to create, sign, and use the required certificates, as well as how to setup Nginx SSL’s capabilities.
