HTTPS using the in-built Tornado server?

Hi all,

I am looking to deploy an app on a local server at work. We have a server which already serves webpages publicly so I was going to wrap my app in an iframe and simply add the html file to the server:

Our webpage uses SSL/HTTPS so I can view the resulting webpage/app internally, but get a blank screen when viewing externally to our network. I therefore have to add SSL to my app.

I know that people use nginx for this, but I was wondering if anyone tried/got working the way described at the link below:

If so, is there any downside, limitations, issues I should consider before pursuing this method?
In case it isn’t obvious, I’m not a network guy…

Note: I can’t host this app on SL cloud as it interacts with a local database.

Thank you.
