With SSL Termination, SSL requests are decrypted at the Load Balancer and sent unencrypted to the backend. This places the slower and more CPU intensive work of decryption on the Load Balancer and simplifies the management of the SSL certificates. However, the traffic between the Load Balancer and the backend is unencrypted, which means it is visible to any neighbors on that network segment.
