Encryption and load balancing endpoints for OpenStack's services

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

  • If I put a load balancer in the front of whole openstack infrastructure, and register all endpoints with the Load Balancer's IP address. Then should I stop HTTPS traffic at the load balancer, and and leave the backend openstack servers' traffic unencrypted, or use HTTPS all the way from clients to backend openstack servers?
