SSL Termination and ASP.NET 2.0

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by Aaron Sanders, Oct 4, 2006.

  1. I've got a question regarding SSL termination with a Cisco Content Switch
    model 11503. I read article 91044 (http://support.microsoft.com/?id=910444),
    but I need clarification. I've got a Web site using SSL and secure cookies
    with requireSSL=True. I'm getting ready to install a Cisco content switch,
    and use it for SSL termination as well. When I do that, I will no longer be
    running SSL on the servers. From what I understand, requireSSL=True in
    Web.config will no longer work, because ASP.NET will detect that the cookie
    was sent from the client over a secure connection, realize that the server is
    not running SSL, and reject the cookie. According to the article, the content
    switch passes no indicator to the server that it is handling the SSL
    termination. However, you can programmatically force ASP.NET to use secure
    cookies by adding a little code when the cookies are passed. Is this correct?
