In a typical SSL offloading environment, an SSL offloader terminates secure client HTTP (HTTPS) connections, decrypts the SSL traffic into cleartext, and forwards the cleartext to a Web server through an HTTP connection. The HTTPS connections become non-secure HTTP connections at the backend server. The backend server does not know that the client connection came in as a secure connection.
