Pound SSL Proxy


SSL Encryption
Create a private key to encrypt a site:

mkdir -p ~/.ssl/pound
cd ~/.ssl/pound

Generate an RSA private key for the server:

openssl genrsa -out server.key 2048

Then create the Certificate Signing Request file, or CSR.



Create a directory to work in:

mkdir -p /extra/src
cd /extra/src

Download and unpack the source:

wget http://www.apsis.ch/pound/Pound-2.6.tgz
tar zxf Pound-2.6.tgz
cd Pound-2.6

Configure it, then build and install:

./configure --with-ssl
make install

Basic Configuration
Create a config file /usr/local/etc/pound.cfg for a basic setup to proxy requests to an internal server:

## sample pound.cfg
User "nobody"
Group "nobody"
