Tested with OpenBSD 6.4

httpd supports TLS 1.2 and works well with acme-client. In this example, relayd(8) only adds some HTTP headers to get higher grades from the following tests:

A+ Observatory by Mozilla
A+ SSL Labs by Qualys
CryptCheck
A+ Security Headers
+ HSTS Preload
100 Lighthouse by Google

There are some drawbacks:

Because relayd(8) is fronting httpd(8): REMOTE_ADDR in access.log is always 127.0.0.1. Here is a diff for httpd(8) to include X-Forwarded-For and X-Forwarded-Port to the log.

Also httpd(8) doesn’t support gzip compression for static files. You can use gzip via FastCGI, if needed.

Set up a web server with httpd(8) and relayd(8) on OpenBSD

httpd(8) listens on ports 80 and 8080, serves plain HTTP, redirects //www.tld to //tld and http://tld:80 to https://tld:443.

relayd(8) listens on ports 443 and terminates TLS for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, acme-client(1) issues a certificate via Let’s Encrypt, cron(8) runs acme-client(1) to check and renew the certifictate.

In this example, TLD is rgz.ee, IPv4 address of the server is 46.23.88.178 and IPv6 is 2a03:6000:1015::178.

   https://rgz.eerelayd 46.23.88.178       :443
or relayd 2a03:6000:1015::178:443  →
   httpd  127.0.0.1          :8080 HTTP 200 OK

   https://www.rgz.eerelayd *                  :443 →
   httpd  127.0.0.1          :8080 HTTP 301 https://rgz.ee

   http://rgz.ee
or http://www.rgz.eehttpd  *                  :80   HTTP 301 https://rgz.ee

Configure httpd(8)

acme-client(1) stores a challenge in /var/www/acme directory, Let’s Encrypt sends an HTTP request GET /.well-known/acme-challengs/*, and httpd(8) serves static files from that directory on such requests.

Note: httpd(8) is chrooted in /var/www/, so httpd(8) sees it as /acme/.

# > /etc/httpd.conf echo '
server "rgz.ee" {
	listen on 127.0.0.1 port 8080
	location "/.well-known/acme-challenge/*" {
		root "/acme"
		request strip 2
	}
}
server "www.rgz.ee" {
	listen on 127.0.0.1 port 8080
	block return 301 "https://rgz.ee$REQUEST_URI"
}
server "rgz.ee" {
	alias "www.rgz.ee"
	listen on * port 80
	block return 301 "https://rgz.ee$REQUEST_URI"
}
'
#

Verify the configuration, enable and restart httpd(8).

# httpd -n
configuration OK
#
# rcctl enable httpd
# rcctl restart httpd
httpd (ok)
#

Configure relayd(8)

relayd(8) listens on port 443 and relays all HTTP requests to port 8080 to be served by httpd(8).
