By default, the SGD Gateway is configured to work with incoming HTTP and AIP data connections that are secured using SSL. The Gateway also supports the use of external SSL accelerators for handling SSL processing.
To use an external SSL accelerator with the Gateway, do the following:
Configure the external SSL accelerator to decrypt SSL connections and forward them as unencrypted connections to the Gateway.
Enable external SSL accelerator support on the Gateway.
This enables the Gateway to accept unencrypted connections on the secure port. See How to Enable External SSL Accelerator Support.
Ensure that client devices use the SSL accelerator as the network entry point.
Typically the SSL accelerator is also a load balancer. Configure the SGD servers and Gateways for a load-balanced deployment as described in Load-Balanced Deployment.
