spedye: A reverse proxy for the HTTPS and SPDY protocols

Spedye is meant to handle all TLS/SSL traffic for a website -- it is based upon the ideas in Bump's Stud, but extended to include converting SPDY connections into normal HTTP requests.

Spedye aims to make adopting the SPDY protocol extremely easy for all kinds of websites.

STATUS: incomplete, prototype, work in progress, non-functional, etc, etc

Goals / Features

  • Built on top of spdylay.
  • SPDY version 2 and version 3
  • Multiple threads or processes each running their own libuv event loop to parallelize cryptographic operations across CPUs.
  • Server Name Indication: Support for multiple Certificates on a single listening address.


The simplest configuration is to forward all traffic on port :443 to port :80:

spedye -b -f -c /etc/ssl/mycert.crt -k /etc/ssl/mycert.key  

Spedye by default adds the following headers to the backend HTTP request:

  • X-Forwarded-For: Client IPv4 or IPv6 address.
  • X-Forwarded-Proto: Client protocol, always https
  • X-Forwarded-Spdy: true or false if SPDY was used.
  • X-Forwarded-Host: Set to the Common Name (CN) of the certificate used.

Spedye also supports using a configuration file for all options.
