Description : scalable TLS proxy
hitch is a network proxy that terminates TLS/SSL connections and
forwards the unencrypted traffic to some backend. It's designed to
handle 10s of thousands of connections efficiently on multicore
* TLS1.0, TLS1.1 and TLS1.2 support
* SNI, with and without wildcard certificates.
* Support for HAproxy's PROXY protocol.
hitch is a fork of stud (https://github.com/bumptech/stud) which has not
been packaged in Debian.
hitch is used at my workplace for TLS termination of online newspapers,
using Varnish as a backend.
Hitch will be maintained in the collab-maint group, or in the
pkg-varnish group. Extra hands for maintenance would be welcome.
