We have a Cisco CSM-S content switch with SSL. Currently our website is behind this switch, which performs load balancing for the HTTP and SSL sites. The http and https sites use different hostnames
***** http://www.site.com=>* *==>Main servers * C * * S * * M * https://secure.site.com=>* *==>Ecom servers *****
The SSL traffic is decrypted by the SSL daughter-card in the CSM, and traffic is then routed by URL to the various servers based on the HTTP hostname. I'd like to add HTTPS support to the main site for non-ecom secure pages but my admin says the CSM isn't capable of routing the traffic in this way. Here is my planned config:
***** http://www.site.com=>* *=(http)=>Main servers https://www.site.com=>* C * * S * * M * https://secure.site.com=>* *=(http)=>Ecom servers (secure network) *****
The way I understand it, the SSL daughtercard should be operating at a layer beneath the HTTP routing, and thus the fact that the main site's secure and non-secure pages all go to the same internal servers should allow this configuration to work.
Does anyone know if the CSM-S supports this configuration? And if it does, how can I describe to my admin how it needs to be set up?
