nginx-jwt - Lua script for Nginx that performs reverse proxy auth using JWT's


nginx-jwt is a Lua script for the Nginx server (running the HttpLuaModule) that will allow you to use Nginx as a reverse proxy in front of your existing set of HTTP services and secure them (authentication/authorization) using a trusted JSON Web Token (JWT) in the Authorization request header, having to make little or no changes to the backing services themselves.IMPORTANT: nginx-jwt is a Lua script that is designed to run on Nginx servers that have the HttpLuaModule installed. But ultimately its dependencies require components available in the OpenResty distribution of Nginx. Therefore, it is recommended that you use OpenResty as your Nginx server, and these instructions make that assumption.

OpenLiteSpeed - High performance, lightweight, HTTP server

Envoy - C++ front/service proxy


As on the ground microservice practitioners quickly realize, the majority of operational problems that arise when moving to a distributed architecture are ultimately grounded in two areas: networking and observability. It is simply an orders of magnitude larger problem to network and debug a set of intertwined distributed services versus a single monolithic application.

muguet - DNS Server & Reverse proxy for Docker - Compatible with docker-compose, boot2docker and docker-machine


When using Docker, it's sometimes a pain to access your containers using specific IPs/ports. Muguet provides you with a DNS Server that resolves auto-generated hostnames to your containers IPs, plus a Reverse Proxy to access all your web apps on port 80.

docker_auth - Authentication server for Docker Registry 2


The original Docker Registry server (v1) did not provide any support for authentication or authorization. Access control had to be performed externally, typically by deploying Nginx in the reverse proxy mode with Basic or other type of authentication. While performing simple user authentication is pretty straightforward, performing more fine-grained access control was cumbersome. Docker Registry 2.0 introduced a new, token-based authentication and authorization protocol, but the server to generate them was not released. Thus, most guides found on the internet still describe a set up with a reverse proxy performing access control.
