If the CSS does not have SSL module, you cannot do SSL offloading. But you can do SSL load balancing, just passing trough, and the server will do the SSL termination.
There is no way to do SSL offloading in CSS?s 11500 series without SSL module.
Recommendations? mmm... that would be a kind of hard, since the 11501 does not have slots and we cannot buy a SSL module for that CSS, in the other the CSS 11503 or 11506 does, and we can buy a SSL module.
In your case the server will need to do the SSL offloading.
It was not me who responded back to your enquiry.The response was correct for older version of CSS 11501.It was kind of a universal truth that you couldnt install SSL Module in 11501 and hence ssl offloading was not possible.
Now there are two versions of 11501. CSS 11501 & 11501S-C. CSS 11501S-C supports both Compression and SSL termintaion.
I havent worked on these new 11501s but Cisco's website clearly says that you can terminate/offload SSL using 11501S-C.
