#   This file contains a partial Apache2 server configuration which
#   enables reverse proxy service for Kea RESTful API. An access to
#   the service is protected by client's certificate verification
#   mechanism. Before using this configuration a server administrator
#   must generate server certificate and private key as well as
#   the certifiate authority (CA). The clients' certificates must
#   be signed by the CA.

#   Note that the steps provided below to generate and setup certifcates
#   are provided as an example for testing purposes only. Always
#   consider best known security measures to protect your production
#   environment.

#   The server certificate and key can be generated as follows:
#
#   openssl genrsa -des3 -out kea-proxy.key 4096
#   openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -key kea-proxy.key -out kea-proxy.crt
#
#   The CA certificate and key can be generated as follows:
#
#   openssl genrsa -des3 -out ca.key 4096
#   openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -key ca.key -out ca.crt
#
#
#   The client certifcate needs to be generated and signed:
#
#   openssl genrsa -des3 -out kea-client.key 4096
#   openssl req -new -key kea-client.key -out kea-client.csr
#   openssl x509 -req -days 365 -in kea-client.csr -CA ca.crt \
#           -CAkey ca.key -set_serial 01 -out kea-client.crt
#
#   Note that the 'common name' value used when generating the client
#   and the server certificates must differ from the value used
#   for the CA certificate.
#
#   The client certificate must be deployed on the client system.
#   In order to test the proxy configuration with 'curl' run
#   command similar to the following:
#
#   curl -k --key kea-client.key --cert kea-client.crt -X POST \
#        -H Content-Type:application/json -d '{ "command": "list-commands" }' \
#         https://kea.example.org/kea
#
#
#   In order to use this configuration within your Apache2 configuration
#   put the following line in the main Apache 2 configuration file:
#
#   Include /path/to/kea-httpd2.conf
#
#   and specify a path appropriate for your system.
#
#
#   Apache2 server configuration starts here.

#   Address and port that the server should bind to.
#   Usually an explicit address is specified to avoid binding to
#   many addresses. For testing https connection on the localhost
#   use:
#       Listen [::1]:443         or
#       Listen 127.0.0.1:443

#   httpd 2.2.30, 2.4.13 and later force-disable aNULL, eNULL and EXP ciphers,
