About SSL administration on the BIG-IP system

The BIG-IP system offers a robust set of features for managing SSL traffic. With the BIG-IP system, you can:

  • Install, create, and manage digital certificates on the BIG-IP system for communication with other devices on the network.
  • Optimize SSL application traffic by terminating incoming client connections and re-initiating server connections. By terminating client connections, the BIG-IP system can optimize and manipulate the data in user-defined ways before sending the data on to the target server.
  • Offload client authentication and encryption/decryption tasks from the target server.
