I am trying to use the AWS ELB service for SSL offloading. The problem is that, while HTTP goes smoothly through the load balancer, HTTPS somehow doesn't work and gives a "Your connection is not secure" in FireFox

This is the setup:

1 Load Balancer(for SSL offloading and to enable AWS shield (DDOS protection)) --> 1 EC2 server <--> 1 DB server

How I've configured it:

Load balancer with listener on port 80 and 443.
target group with ONLY port 80 enabled.
Security group with port 80 and 443 on both load balancer and EC2 instance.

Am I missing something?

NOTE: I've checked the documentation and almost seen all YouTube videos that are remotely related, to no avail.

    Are you accessing the IP address or using a domain name? – user65237 Sep 12 '17 at 21:20

    Oh wauw... I used the public dns of the load balancer. Thank you very much for pointing that out! – B.Cakir Sep 12 '17 at 21:47

As already mentioned, are you using a domain ?

Have you set up ssl certificates ?
