I'd like to secure my front-end login page that contains the login widget with https in Sitefinity 7.3. I know how to secure the entire front-end with https, but don't want to do that for performance reasons.
When I set Require SSL on the login page, the login submission gets blocked by the browser due to the fact that http://localhost/Sitefinity/Authenticate/SWT is not https. This seems like it should be a simple thing but can't find any references on how to accomplish this without securing the entire front-end.
Here are my web.config settings:
<add key="956...E36" encoding="Hexadecimal" membershipProvider="Default" realm="http://localhost" />
<add key="956...E36" encoding="Hexadecimal" realm="https://localhost" />
