Description

At the Jan 6. CSBoard meeting, they expressed a strong preference for HTTPS encryption of traffic to and from the OTSDAQ web gui. This could be implemented as a "gateway" application, or by modifying otsdaq/xdaq itself to handle the SSL/TLS encryption.

I have created a Node.js module which does the HTTPS encryption, and passes requests to a XDAQ server using HTTP. This solution still has to be integrated into otsdaq, possibly with other security upgrades (a UNIX domain socket could also be used, for example).
