I am looking at the option terminating SSL at load balancer level.
I have couple of questions
1.     From security audit point terminating ssl at load balancer level is ok or  it is violation  by any standard?? (we are  not processing any cradit card info in the web site).
2     SSL termination at load balancer : will it save cost compare to buying ssl for each web server ?
3.   SSL termination at load balancer better or web server level is better ?
4.   which load balancer perform better when SSL is added (Cisco, f5, etc) ??
