What is the backend SSL profile default configuration in Silverline?

Question

  • This article provides information about the default Silverline backend SSL profile configuration
  • Silverline_Server_Default

 

Environment

  • Silverline WAF
  • Silverline DDoS
  • Proxy/Proxies
  • SSL Certificate/SSL Frontend Profile/SSL Backend Profile

 

Answer

  • Silverline allows proxy customers the option of terminating their SSL encrypted traffic inside of the service.
  • The SSL sessions are terminated within Silverline infrastructure using proxy certificates and keys (SSL Front-End Profile). Then, Silverline creates a separate SSL session and use it to communicate back to your backend server (SSL Backend Profile).
  • When using the Silverline_Server_Default backend SSL profile, it is the proxy negotiating the connection to the backend server, without validating the backend server certificate by default.
  • There is also an admin section available to SOC (also available for Silverline_Server_Default profile) where we can configure the profile to authenticate the certificate presented by the backend server.
    • These settings are disabled by default, but can be switched on by the SOC.
