Post of the Week: SSL on a Virtual Server

In this Lightboard Post of the Week, I answer a few questions about SSL/https on Virtual Servers. BIG-IP being a default deny, full proxy device, it’s important to configure specific ports, like 443, to accept https traffic along with client and server side profiles and include your SSL certificates. We cover things like SAN/SNI certificates but I failed to mention that self-signed certificates are bad anywhere except for testing or on the server side of the connection.
