rails 3 - Securing an app with SSL
I have a rails 3 app hosted on heroku which contains sensitive data which is why i want to implement SSL. The info I learned from google searching doesn't exactly match my use case as I want to SSL the entire site. I'd like your help understanding the following.
Is there a simple way to force all app requests to use SSL? I want the landing page to even have SSL as the landing page has a sign in form. It seems like it'd be a lot simpler to SSL everything than select SSL on a per page basis. That being said, do I need a gem for this?

Look for a Rack middleware that accomplishes this.
