Configuring server certificates for secure Web publishing

When publishing Web servers or Outlook Web Access, Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway uses certificates as follows:

  • HTTP to HTTPS bridging:
  • HTTPS connection between the external client and the Forefront TMG computer.
  • HTTP connection between the Forefront TMG computer and the backend Web server
  • This scenario requires a server certificate on the Forefront TMG computer in order to authenticate it to the external client.
  • HTTPS to HTTPS bridging.
  • HTTPS connection between the external client and the Forefront TMG computer
  • HTTPS connections between the Forefront TMG computer and the backend Web server
  • This scenario requires a server certificate on the Forefront TMG computer in order to authenticate it to the external client and requires a server certificate on the backend Web server in order to authenticate it to the Forefront TMG computer.

The following flowchart presents the options for each scenario.
