For my web front end's I plan to put the two of them against a load balancer (netscaler) the admin i'm working with gave me the option to Offload SSL on the load balancer...in 2010 I would have said yes to this but i'm not sure how this would work in 2013. Should I allow the load balancer to handle the SSL work or push it through to my WFE's.
If i'm offloading SSL to the loadbalancer do I still need to have my web applications setup to use HTTPS? can't I just get away with using HTTP now? the confusing point I am trying to figure out is...I read a lot about how the communication interfarm should be https...is it automatically https and the web apps are handled by my configuration either HTTP or HTTPS?
