19.32. mod_ssl

The mod_ssl enables encrypted, secure transactions between the server and client with SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Versions 2 and 3, and TLS (Transport Layer Security) Version 1. Apache uses OpenSSL as its cryptography engine. Apache 2.0 and up.

The directives in this module set the locations of certificate and key files, specify options for the behavior of the encryption engine, and set up authorization requirements for access to protected parts of the server. The module also creates a number of new SSL_* environment variables, which will be available to SSI, CGI, and custom logging formats.
