Do you mind sharing the ssl accelerator hardware solution, I am very interested in how it works. Thanks. :-)
I still couldn't believe name based SSL vhost possible.
After reading the squid configuration options you posted and cf.data.pre in squid source code (version 3.0 and 2.5), I think that the client could only get the SSL certificate specified in the squid configuration, but not the SSL certificates used by the backend Apache and the backend Apache only received decrypted requests from squid.
If you don't mind, could you please PM me the SSL web sites configured in this way. I am really interested in such solution.
