Mixing secured (HTTPS) and non-secured (HTTP) content in the samepage


Is it possible to have secured (SSL/HTTPS) and non-secured (HTTP)
content in the same page without breaking the security? I am developing
a secured reservation system in which the user can access Google Maps
(not secured). The map is embedded in the page and does not open in a
separate window.

What solution do you recommend? Use iframes? If so, how?

Thank you,

If you have separate portal windows, one coming from http and the other
from https, then security won't be a problem, as the https window will
always be https.

You just need to get the URL for each window to come from the
appropriate URL.

That depends on how you want to define security. Sure it is possible to
mix resource retrieved via the encrypted and the unencrypted version of
the protocol. Security is then compromised such that the connection
for resources retrieved via unencrypted HTTP is unencrypted, while the
connections for resources retrieved via HTTPS (HTTP over SSL/TLS) are

You are off topic here. (It is irrelevant for your concerns that Google
Maps uses XML HTTP requests triggered by client-side scripting.)

Does anyone know of a working (python) https proxy which allows viewing of unencrypted data being sent from my browser to an https site? I've worked my way through most on the list at http://xhaus.com/alan/python/proxies.html, but while many claim to support https, if you actually point your browser at the proxies, they work fine for http, but not for https pages.

I have a VB.NET application that needs to make a web request using the https protocol, but not on the standard https port. It works fine on the standard https port, but as soon as the uri becomes "https://mywebsite.com:5004/" the application errors out when the request stream is closed. Error "Cannot access a disposed object - System.Net.TLSStream". Any one have a solution or work around? Thanks.

Hi, I have a page that makes many XmlHttpRequest requests from a single page. This works fine but I need some requests to be made over a secure connection.
