As the title of the questions asks, is it important/needed to have ssl/https working between docker containers on the same network?
Our setup is an Nginx container that proxies two Tomcat containers.
The Nginx container performs ssl termination for the internet cloud.
Then the http request is forwarded to one of two tomcat instances in the same docker network.
For security/safety should the communication between the Nginx container and the two Tomcat containers happen over ssl?
Thank you for your time.
