How SSL connection works?

Question asked by g_rathod on May 4, 2017

Can anyone explain how exactly ssl connection works with alfresco?

I see generally we setup alfresco with port 8080 (simple http) connection, but when we deal with https there are lots of term involved with port  443/ 8443/ and https protocol.


If default we check it runs with direct connector port 8080, but if my alfresco under load balancing then how actually communication happen?

Below are scenarios ::


1) LB  ->  Apache -> Alfresco

2. LB-> Apache -> siteminder agent -> Alfresco  ( when external auth)


Can anyone explain if end user fire url , how request traverse and how it is being served with end to end with which port?
