I have the following typical setup:
LoadBalancer/Proxy in front (Nginx)
Node apps in background
decrypts the SSL requests coming from outside
forwards decrypted requests to Node apps
gets back the response
encrypts the response and sends it to client
I was wondering if in terms of security it is OK to have non-encyrpted connection between Nginx and Node apps.
Especially in terms of packet sniffing.
I found a ~8 year old entry saying that in Linode network it is not possible to sniff (
I wanted to have a more recent confirmation of that.
