I'm willing to use this kind of configuration :

https client -->stunnel --> haproxy --> 2 web servers in http (or more)

I've understand that haproxy can't handle the ssl part, that's why stunnel
is needed.

I've read that a Patch is required for stunnel to work with haproxy in this
kind of confirmation

"I run stunnel 4.32 with patch from http://haproxy.1wt.eu/download/patches/ on
port 443 and forward it to port 81 on the same machine which is bound to

Can anyone tell me if this patch is now included in stunnel,
in particular, does Ubuntu 11.10 include it ?

I really would rather stay with package provided  by ubuntu in order to
have easy upgrade/security fix.
I've experiences the work overload of manually compiling everything in
Apache for instance ;)

Any advices on this kind of setup ? documentation pointers? best practices

Description: Universal SSL tunnel for network daemons
 The stunnel program is designed to work  as  SSL  encryption wrapper
between remote client and local (inetd-startable) or remote server. The
concept is that having non-SSL
 aware daemons running  on  your  system you can easily setup them to
communicate with clients over secure SSL channel.

 stunnel can be used to add  SSL  functionality  to  commonly used  inetd
 daemons  like  POP-2,  POP-3  and  IMAP servers without any changes in the
programs' code.

 This package contains a wrapper script for compatibility with stunnel 3.x
