nuster - A web caching proxy server based on HAProxy

  •    C

Nuster is a simple yet powerful web caching proxy server based on HAProxy. It is 100% compatible with HAProxy, and takes full advantage of the ACL functionality of HAProxy to provide fine-grained caching policy based on the content of request, response or server status. Nuster is very fast, some test shows nuster is almost three times faster than nginx when both using single core, and nearly two times faster than nginx and three times faster than varnish when using all cores.

LittleProxy - High Performance HTTP Proxy

  •    Java

LittleProxy is a high performance HTTP proxy written in Java atop Trustin Lee's excellent Netty event-based networking library. It's quite stable, performs well, and is easy to integrate into your projects. A proxy server like LittleProxy contains always a web server, too. If you get an URI without scheme, host and port in originalRequest it's a direct request to your proxy. You can return a HttpFilters implementation which answers responses with HTML content.

frp - A fast reverse proxy to help you expose a local server behind a NAT or firewall to the internet

  •    Go

frp is a fast reverse proxy to help you expose a local server behind a NAT or firewall to the internet. Now, it supports tcp, udp, http and https protocol when requests can be forwarded by domains to backward web services. Expose any http and https service behind a NAT or firewall to the internet by a server with public IP address(Name-based Virtual Host Support). Expose any tcp or udp service behind a NAT or firewall to the internet by a server with public IP address.

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

  •    Javascript

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.

Envoy - C++ front/service proxy

  •    C++

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.

Squid - HTTP reverse proxy optimizes web delivery

  •    C++

Squid is a caching proxy for the Web supporting HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and more. It reduces bandwidth and improves response times by caching and reusing frequently-requested web pages. Squid has extensive access controls and makes a great server accelerator. Cached content means data is served locally and users will see this through faster download speeds with frequently-used content.

multitor - A tool that lets you create multiple TOR instances with a load-balancing traffic between them by HAProxy

  •    Shell

A tool that lets you create multiple TOR instances with a load-balancing traffic between them by HAProxy. It's provides one single endpoint for clients. Support socks protocol and http-proxy servers: polipo, privoxy and hpts. In addition, you can view previously running TOR processes and create a new identity for all or selected processes. Multitor was created with the aim of initialize many TOR processes as quickly as possible. I could use many instances for my daily use programs (web browsers, messangers and other). In addition, I was looking for a tool that would increase anonymity when conducting penetration tests and testing the security of infrastructure.

contour - Contour is a Kubernetes ingress controller for Lyft's Envoy proxy.

  •    Go

Contour is an Ingress controller for Kubernetes that works by deploying the Envoy proxy as a reverse proxy and load balancer. Unlike other Ingress controllers, Contour supports dynamic configuration updates out of the box while maintaining a lightweight profile. Contour also introduces a new ingress API (IngressRoute) which is implemented via a Custom Resource Definition (CRD). Its goal is to expand upon the functionality of the Ingress API to allow for a richer user experience as well as solve shortcomings in the original design.
