|Applies To||RSA Product Set: RSA Archer|
RSA Product/Service Type: RSA Archer
RSA Version/Condition: Any
|Issue||Does Archer support the concept of SSL offloading, or SSL termination, at the load balancer?|
In an SSL offloading (termination) scenario, IIS (Internet Information Services)only listens over port 80, while the end users communicate with Archer over port 443. Traffic from end users hits the load balancer, and the load balancer communicates with Archer over port 80. In this configuration, only one SSL certificate needs to be installed on the LB, and we don't need to have certs set up in every instance of IIS.
|Resolution||Yes, Archer supports SSL offloading, or SSL termination, at the load balancer.|
