Reverse Proxy - http to https

I am running Oracle XE 11.2.0.2.0 on CentOS and having problem with https when calling through UTL_HTTP package when the SSL certificates of the server I access are signed with SSH-2. Oracle 11.2.0.2.0 and earlier can only handle SSH-1.
As there's no patch for XE this cannot be fixed.
UTL_HTTP however can take an argument for a Proxy server through which the required host can be accessed.  
I am thinking to have some kind of proxy server to which Oracle UTL_HTTP can make http call and the proxy server in the background makes https call to the actual host.  
But not sure how to do it and what do I need for this.
Any ideas are welcome.

Assuming that you mean sha-1 vs sha-2.

At least in theory you should be able to do this with stunnel - stunnel listeners let you interchange between ssl wraps & non-ssl. With two of them, you could run client ssl - stunnel - plain - stunnel - ssl oracle.

If you have control of the Oracle server though, it would be easier to just have a listener with a self-generated cert without the issue :)

Thanks. I used Apache ProxyPass to point to https traffic and make Apache run with http. Then called Apache URL in http instead of the target server with https.
