Ethernet over HTTP

2023-12-29 20:40:10.760166+01 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

IETF: Ethernet over HTTPS Protocol

This document defines a protocol for encapsulating Ethernet frames over HTTPS, allowing secure communication between a client and internal web servers. The protocol includes authentication using strong API keys encrypted with the server's public key. The communication is secured using TLS for privacy and integrity.

You can tunnel it over anything.. and yeah, I've used OpenVPN over ports 53 and 443 just cause it gets through. But this has very specific uses that probably should be done other ways.

Also, that spec is light. Not even a good proxy, but that is essentially what it is.

Yeah, it does remind me of RTF 9484: Proxying IP in HTTP, but more so...

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
