    You have to do following thing:
    1) Set up an SSL cert on your server.
    2) Forward or Link to an absolute URL (with https:// at the beginning) when going to login page.
    3) Forward to an absolute URL .after successful authentication.
    4) Include a check in the login page code to only accept https connections.
