reverse proxy

Tag: reverse proxy

In computer networks, a reverse proxy is a type of proxy server that retrieves resources on behalf of a client from one or more servers. These resources are then returned to the client, appearing as if they originated from the proxy server itself. Unlike a forward proxy, which is an intermediary for its associated clients to contact any server, a reverse proxy is an intermediary for its associated servers to be contacted by any client. In other words, a proxy acts on behalf of the client, while a reverse proxy acts on behalf of the server. Quite often, popular web servers use reverse-proxying functionality, shielding application frameworks of weaker HTTP capabilities. In this context, „weaker” means limitations in ability to handle excessive load, and limitation in handling the entire variety of request formats that can adhere to HTTP 1.x, HTTP 2.x, or requests which may be hard to detect.
