Apache - SSL
Posted on 2011-03-16
I have recently enabled SSL security for my Apache web server. I am using weblogic as my app server. I didnt install any ssl certificate on my app server. Whenever I access my application, the following changes happen.
1) I hit the https URL. It reaches webserver. - As a sign of encryption, the background of the url changes to pale yellow.
2) After login webserver handsover the request to the app server. - Here the background changes to default white. Does it mean that the encrytion is topping when the request reaching the application server?
I am in an assumption that if web server is https enabled, all the requests/responses flowing through it will be encrypted nomatter how many application-servers or database-servers or content servers involved in the transaction.
Am I right or wrong? Plesae clarify!!!!
