11503 and SSL Termination - Cookie Handling

I'm looking for some insight on how the 11503 handles SSL termination,

specifically with regard to cookie handling. We are going to be

installing a 11503, so it can handle load balancing, content switching

and SSL termination instead of IIS / WLBS. If you move SSL termination

off of the Web servers and disable SSL in IIS, how does ASP.NET handle

secure cookies? We want to set requireSSL="true" in Web.config, but

since the Web server will no longer be running SSL, it won't enforce

that attribute. I was wondering if the content switch passed any

special header to IIS, or if the content switch can be configured to

add the secure attribute to all cookies. I haven't found anything in

the documentation so far.

Depending on your software version, this page has links to CSS SSL configuration Guides based upon the software you're running.

You can configure the CSS to issue cookies in place of the actual server.
