Hi All ,

Barbican server is interfaced with the Load Balancer configured with
HTTPS.The curl calls are made to the Load Balancer URL and not to the
actual barbican node directly
Hence I have modified the barbican.conf file with load balancer URL as
given below :

#  communicate back with this service.
*host_href = https://load.softlayer.com:9311

CURL call made to Load Balancer URL returns the HTTP response rather than
HTTPS response.Please find the CURL command and response below :

[asha ~]$ curl -X GET https://load.softlayer.com:9311 -H "Accept:
application/json" -H "User-Agent:keystoneauth1/2.0.1"
{"versions": {"values": [{"status": "stable", "updated":
"2015-04-28T00:00:00Z", "media-types": [{"base": "application/json",
"type": "application/vnd.openstack.key-manager-v1+json"}], "id": "v1",
[{*"href": "http://load.softlayer.com:9311/v1/
<http://load.softlayer.com:9311/v1/>"*, "rel": "self"}, {"href": "
http://docs.openstack.org/", "type": "text/html", "rel": "describedby"}]}]}}

Would like to know the reason behind the curl returning the href value with
HTTP response eventhough the request is made tp HTTPS configured LOAD
In other words why href value is not returned as
<https://load.softlayer.com:9311/v1/>" .*

*Is this bug in Barbican?*

Any response and help would highly be appreciated.
*Thanks and Regards,*
