What's the difference between END-TO-END SSL and other SSL?

Could anyone summarize all of the differences?

Thanks a lot! Points guaranteed.

    Hi CZ,

    Ad far as i understand..

    END-TO-END SSL is when the whole process is encrypted... for example when you logon in to a HTTPS URL and all the connections are secure. in the other hand SSL can be apply only to certain connexions or services...

    Hope this help

      Hi,

      A typical end to end ssl is where all the pages with a protected content in them are secured, this can be with a certificate or uid/pw.

      No we cannot tell from the profile if its end to end, as that would again depend on the application

      Regards

    Hi,

    SSL end-to-end means that the web dispatcher is just forwarding the

    HTTPS requests to the backend system without unpacking / decrypting the data.

    This can be configured by icm/server_port_<XX> = ...,PROT=ROUTER,..

    To be able to configure the ROUTER protocol on the web dispatcher you also

    must have configured HTTPS / SSL on the relevant backend system.

    Configuring SSL "only" means that the web dispatcher is listening to HTTPS and you can decide with the relevant parameters, if the communication to the backend is HTTP or if it is again reencrypted using HTTPS.

    This would end up in using the parameter icm/server_port_<xx> = ...,PROT=HTTPS,....

    Kind Regards
