Yes, and in fact it would certainly be the most acceptable method. BTW, it is finally what we're using in our appliance at Exceliance : the web interface controls everything and is in charge of the authentication.

OK. But as you certainly understood it, I don't want to provide insecure access to some controls because there will be a lot of people who will use it anyway ; not everyone will install an HTTPS reverse proxy for the admin page.
