Introduction

This module provides a Django middleware class, proxiedssl.middleware.ProxiedSslWsgiMiddleware, that looks for one of two headers and sets the WSGI URL scheme to the value of the header. This allows a proxy server that handles SSL to notify the Django WSGI request handler that the end user is accessing the site through SSL.

Installation

Add proxiedssl.middleware.ProxiedSslWsgiMiddleware to the MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES tuple in your settings file. It would be best if it was first so that the is_secure method is accurate for the other middleware classes.

Requirements

Django and you currently must be using the WSGI handler either through a WSGI server or through the FCGI server which is a wrapper around the WSGI server.

TODO

  • Add a middleware class for the mod_python handler
  • Add full unit tests
