[1] Create SSL certificates.
[root@dlp ~]#
cd /etc/pki/tls/certs

[root@dlp certs]#
openssl req -x509 -nodes -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout /etc/pki/tls/certs/haproxy.pem -out /etc/pki/tls/certs/haproxy.pem -days 365

Generating a 2048 bit RSA private key
......++++++
.......++++++
writing new private key to '/etc/pki/tls/certs/haproxy.pem'
-----
You are about to be asked to enter information that will be incorporated
into your certificate request.
What you are about to enter is what is called a Distinguished Name or a DN.
There are quite a few fields but you can leave some blank
For some fields there will be a default value,
If you enter '.', the field will be left blank.

[root@dlp certs]#
chmod 600 haproxy.pem

[2] Configure HAProxy for SSL.
[root@dlp ~]#
vi /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg
# add in the "global" section

global
      # max per-process number of SSL connections

    maxsslconn     256
      # set 2048 bits for Diffie-Hellman key

    tune.ssl.default-dh-param 2048

# add follows in the "frontend" section

frontend  http-in
    bind *:80
      # specify port and certs

    bind *:443 ssl crt /etc/pki/tls/certs/haproxy.pem

[root@dlp ~]#
systemctl restart haproxy

[3] Make sure all works fine to access to the frontend server from a Client with HTTPS like follows.
