When required, Transparent Edge can do SSL terminations by caching requests as if they were in HTTP. In this case, the traffic is sent encrypted between the user and Transparent Edge. The certificate is then decrypted in our caches and all the traffic within the Transparent Edge platform is sent in HTTP. This lets us apply web caching technology to the SSL traffic. The traffic between Transparent Edge and the client's origin server can be sent in HTTP or HTTPS, at the client’s discretion.
By default, we use HTTP2 on tlsv1.2 and tlsv1.3.
At Transparent Edge, there are always several different ways of doing something. In this case, we give you two options for serving a secure website.
The second, and simpler, option is to leave the entire matter of certificates to us. We’ll take care of sending you valid certificates and renewing them, so you don’t have to do or worry about anything.
