I have looked at the Swift Proxy settings for SSL and we can turn this on, but it is not production ready.

Are there any plans to make Swift with SSL production ready in the near future?

Are there any plans to use encryption on the connection between the Swift Proxy and the Swift nodes?

Usually if you want to have Swift with SSL we advise to use a load balancer like pound or HaProxy, there is multiple issues with python eventlet and ssl and it's much easier to have a dedicated service to do SSL instead of having to do it directly on Swift.

With regards to your second question (the connection between the proxy and storage nodes), there is https://blueprints.launchpad.net/swift/+spec/secure-internal-network-requests, but I don't think anyone has picked it up yet.
