Ok this might be a rookie question but here's my scenario.
- I have a loadbalancer managing a single EC2 instance at the moment.
- I have an application running on that EC2 instance.
What I like to achieve: 1. A complete HTTPS only connection to my application on EC2 that presently binds to 8080.
Whats the right way to achieve it? 1. Should I just upload a SSL certificate to the loadbalancer and force an SSL connection between just the client and the load balancer? Should I let the traffic between load balancer & EC2 be protected by security group?
- Do I need to configure my tomcat web app server with another certificate and configure its 443 https connector with keystore path and redirect HTTP connections to 443 port?
Is there something that I am missing Thanks,
