* Reverse Proxy for IIS

While a proxy or 'forward proxy' is used to control access to Internet by internal corporate users, the ' reverse proxy' is used to control the access of internal assets from Internet users.

A popular example of reverse proxy is 'ISA - Internet Security & Acceleration Server'. 

ISA is actually much more than a reverse proxy server and is a commercial product.

I have started a new Open source project on Codeplex for Reverse Proxy.

This project aims at building an open source reverse proxy using .NET technologies for IIS 6.0 web server.

The main features which this component aims to provide are :

  • URL re-writing
  • URL mapping
  • Support GET & POST requests
  • Support URL redirects
  • Support ASP.NET sessions
  • Authentication
  • Authorization
  • SSL enabled at both ends

It can be accessed here.

Pls provide your views/feedback to

~tata & take care~
