I want to use a Apache server as a reverse proxy in DMZ to forward https requests to the application servers behind the internal firewall.

The Apache server will not handle the SSL handshake and decryption/encryption, which would be done in application server. This means the HTTPS session is between the web browser and application server through DMZ. The client can only access the application using the
domain name of proxy server. Is it possible? Which module do I need? mod_proxy, mod_proxy_connect, mod-rewrite?
