We would like to be able to redirect certain requests to https using URL->URL redirection.
Redirection across protocols (http to https or vice-versa) can only be done through external redirection, because the browser must initiate the connection. SSL is a network-level protocol requiring a prescribed handshake between the browser and the server. The server cannot arbitrarily convert a non-SSL session into an SSL session.
Thus we are requesting to include the feature in coming releases of Domino .
