The relayd project provides a FREE implementation of a secure web engine that consists of relayd and httpd.
relayd first appeared in OpenBSD 4.1 to provide a service that helps Server Load Balancing (SLB) with OpenBSD's Packet Filter (pf). It was written by Pierre-Yves Ritschard and Reyk Floeter. The HTTP server, httpd, first appeared in OpenBSD 5.6 and was based on the code of relayd. The development is an an ongoing effort by Reyk Floeter, Sebastian Benoit, Florian Obser and various contributing OpenBSD hackers. The software is used by some large sites and has also been ported to other operating systems.
An overview of the basic features of the load balancer and HTTP server.
The efforts emphasize portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security and integrated cryptography.
