I have nginx setup with SSL and have defined a proxy_pass directive so that it proxies certain requests to the backed system through HTTP What I am interested in knowing is if the response from the backend server will arrive encrypted to the client. Will nginx encrypt the response before sending it back to the client?



Yes, nginx will encrypt the response before it gets sent back to the client. proxy_pass happens transparently for the user.
