HTTP/2 and TLS

SWS provides HTTP/2 protocol and TLS support.

This feature is disabled by default and can be activated via the boolean -t, --http2 option as well as string arguments --http2-tls-cert (TLS certificate file path) and --http2-tls-key (private key file path).


  • Either --host, --port and --root have defaults (optional values) so they can be specified or omitted as required.
  • Don't forget to adjust the proper --port value for the HTTP/2 & TLS feature.
  • When this feature is enabled (--http2=true) then the security headers are also enabled automatically.
  • The server provides Termination Signal handling with Graceful Shutdown ability by default.
