    QUESTION:

    We have our web applications behind Load Balancers and we want to start using SSL for communications between the servers and the users and the servers. What is the best way of managing our SSL certificates.
     


    ANSWER:

    The most efficient way to manage SSL certificates in an LB environment is to have the Load Balancer serve up the certificates instead of having each individual application doing it. SSL offloading/termination provides this functionality and is available in most load balancers. Review the following docs pages (under related videos) for instructions on how to do this.
