Running the CryptoBox behind a proxy
This describes how to setup the CryptoBox webserver behind a apache or lighttpd
as proxy webservers.
-=-=-=- apache in front of the cryptobox-server (cherrypy) -=-=-=-
The following section describes how to configure an apache2 webserver for
forwarding requests to the cherrypy server of the CryptoBox.
1) Required modules
- proxy
- header
Both module should be part of usual default installations of apache2.
Activate these modules. For debian you should run: a2enmod MOD_NAME
2) Configuration directives
The following example should help you to create your own proxy configuration
for apache2.
ProxyRequests Off
<Proxy *>
Order Deny,Allow
Allow from all
<Location /cryptobox/>
ProxyPass http://localhost:8080/
ProxyPassReverse http://localhost:8080/
RequestHeader set CryptoBox-Location /cryptobox
# uncomment the next line for ssl-enabled virtualhosts
RequestHeader set X-SSL-Request 1
Now you should restart apache2.
3) Testing
Now you should point your webserver to the proxy host and check if
the CryptoBox layout ist working properly.
-=-=-=- lighttpd in front of the cryptobox-server (cherrypy) -=-=-=-
In this section we do the same as above, but with lighttpd.
Your lighttpd config should contain something like this:
# selecting modules
server.modules = ( "mod_scgi" )
scgi.server = ( "/cryptobox" =>
(( "host" => "",
"port" => 8080,
"check-local" => "disable"
