Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there any ? I've done some research but haven't found any sound (meaning easy to set up, easy to use and maintain) solution, but surely there is something I mus be missing as HTTPS world keep growing and growing.

ServerFault is not really the best place to get product recommendations. The FAQ explicitly says not to post shopping questions like this. –  Brent Pabst Aug 16 '12 at 1:41
    
Shopping Questions are Off-Topic on any of the Stack Exchange sites. See Q&A is hard, lets go Shopping and the FAQ for more details. –  Chris S Aug 16 '12 at 2:10
    
IF OPEN SOURCE means shopping then I'm a Jesus...THANKS for closing the topic and minus point. What I had in mind was some SW solution - I found a few which are quite complicated and was looking for something simpler. –  gyre Aug 16 '12 at 12:19
    
if anyone is still interested in this I found an interesting way how to setup SSL Offloader/accelerator using NGINX wiki.nginx.org/SSL-Offloader –  gyre Sep 12 '12 at 12:26

1 Answer 1

I generally think of an "ssl accelerator" as a hardware solution (so "open source" doesn't really enter into the picture)...but in broader sense, you can use any one of a number of SSL proxies (Nginx, Apache, Pound, HAProxy, stunnel, etc) to offload your SSL processing onto a system other than your backend application.

There is such thing as open source hardware... OpenCores for ASIC design; and a wide variety of open source/design hardware projects. But I agree, he's confusing "ssl accelerator" hardware with various software systems. –  Chris S Aug 16 '12 at 2:17
