    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:

    Web.config settings:
    <wsFederation passiveRedirectEnabled="true" issuer="http://localhost" realm="https://localhost" requireHttps="false" />
    <cookieHandler requireSsl="false" />


    SecurityConfig.config settings:

            <add key="956...E36" encoding="Hexadecimal" membershipProvider="Default" realm="http://localhost" />
            <add key="956...E36" encoding="Hexadecimal" realm="https://localhost" />

    Inside the page editor, if you edit the login widget you can specify the service URL. By changing the URL format to https you will be able to successfully authenticate.
