SSL Re-Encryption

I'm sure this has been asked and answered before but the only things I found when searching were pretty old. So my apologies.



I need to configure a pool with servers that require SSL connections. From what I have found this is called re-encryption.




HTTPS Client --> SSL F5 --> SSL server




Is there any current tutorial or explanation on how to do this? The F5 I am working with is running 9.3.1

    Before you can load balance HTTPS traffic, you must create one or more SSL keys and certificates to install onto the BIG-IP system. With SSL keys and certificates, and a custom Client SSL and optional Server SSL profile that you create, the BIG-IP system can perform the SSL handshaking normally performed by a target web server.
  • But note that the above applies to BIG-IP LTM 10.2.3, 10.2.2, 10.2.1, 10.2.0.


    Since you are using a older version, there may be some UI changes and extra steps to be done. E.g. BIG-IP uses certificates and keys in the PEM format. In versions prior to version 10.1.0, all certificates and keys must be converted prior to importing. Below are further information.
