With benefits including security, improved performance, and better search engine positioning, there's no reason to not be serving all web traffic over HTTPS. In this activity, the student will take an existing NGINX virtual host that only handles traffic over HTTP and configure it to handle HTTPS traffic (using a self-signed certificate) and redirect HTTP traffic to HTTPS.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
