Configure Kibana for HTTPS

I want the front end of ES (kibana) to run on SSL but keep the backend
connection from Kibana to ES unencrypted since both are running on the same
host. I configured Apache2 to accept SSL connections and it works but when
Kibana populates the dashboard it get the below error. Any help is very
much appreciated. Could not reach
http://ec2-XX-XX-XX-XX.compute-1.amazonaws.com/elasticsearch/_nodes
http://ec2-xx-xx-xx-xx.compute-1.amazonaws.com/elasticsearch/_nodes. If
you are using a proxy, ensure it is configured correctly

Kibana version 3

Kibana 3 doesn't have a backend. The connections to Elasticsearch
originate from your browser so you'll want to encrypt them as well.
Placing just the Kibana files behind HTTPS isn't useful.

Thanks Magnus. Would be able to point me towards on how to set that up?

Googling "kibana reverse proxy" should yield some useful results,
but start with the blog post from the Elasticsearch team.

I'm also working through the same process (see my post at
https://groups.google.com/d/msg/elasticsearch/S4LQQrbZAb4/r8bnxIwgkGUJ),
but the ES blog link you provided doesn't touch on Kibana access to ES
sitting behind a reverse proxy. This is where I'm having problems. Any
ideas welcome.
