About creating a layer 3 outbound explicit proxy SSL Orchestrator topology

Layer 3 outbound topologies provide internal users with access to external remote resources when the organization does not own the application resources and SSL keys. Within L3 topology deployments, traffic is routed to the BIG-IP device.
  1. The internal routed traffic is targeted to an explicit proxy by means of the BIG-IP device after an explicit proxy request.
  2. The BIG-IP device decrypts the traffic and sends it to the security devices.
  3. The BIG-IP device then re-encrypts the traffic and the traffic is then routed out to the applications and the internet.
