One of the ways to configure the BIG-IP system to manage SSL traffic is to enable both client-side and server-side SSL processing:
This implementation uses a self-signed certificate to authenticate HTTP traffic.
To implement client-side and server-side authentication using HTTP and SSL with a self-signed certificate, you perform a few basic configuration tasks.
After you complete the tasks in this implementation, the BIG-IP system ensures that SSL authentication and encryption occurs for both client-side and server-side HTTP traffic. The system performs this authentication and encryption according to the values you specify in the Client SSL and Server SSL profiles.
