Server-side SSL




Currently we only do client-side SSL on the F5. I've been asked if we can encrypt the traffic from the F5 to web servers. I know the F5 can do server side ssl so just wonderered if someone could confirm the follwing steps are correct to do this?



Install a certificate on the web servers, a self signed certificate should be OK.


Create a server side SSL profile on the LTM.


Apply the SSL profile to the Virtual Server



It seems very simple, am I correct?



Also could this have any impact on the ASM as we are just starting to set this up?
