Just a reference:


Stunnel is a proxy designed to add TLS encryption functionality to existing clients and servers without any changes in the programs' code. Its architecture is optimized for security, portability, and scalability (including load-balancing), making it suitable for large deployments.

This grabbed me. But I am a bit lost as to what is happening here. Would you please be so kind as to explain a little more? Not code, but rather why this would be useful?

and this is my solution to avoid coding in PHP, as I feel more comfortable coding in AutoIt.

Do you run AutoIt on a Linux box, with Apache, but instead of PHP, AutoIt? Please enlighten me?

You can run Apache from a distro in windows. I can redirect within Apache from another HTTP daemon ( made with AutoIt in my case ) in another port, or use PHP and an AutoIt CUI as CGI.
No need to run a specific OS to do HTTP/HTTPS, you can do it from the comfort of the known world.

The best you can do is to load a virtual machine and play with it.

Oh, another thing. You can, as I have ( and currently do ), run XAMPP open to the world. It is not necessarily for development only.
PS: But you'll want change some stuff to have attackers ( and they will come ) not have their way with their cookie cutter style attacks.
You should search online for advise on different 
approaches to be aware of.
