Abstract

A computer implemented method for optimizing secure content switching; the method includes a client initiating transmission of a secure content request. The secure request is transmitted through a network to a load balancer. The secure request is received at the load balancer and the secure request is forwarded to an individual server of a plurality of servers. The secure request is received and processed at the individual server. The secure request is sent to an appropriate back­end web server. A requested secure content is then sent from the appropriate back-end web server to the user via the server, the load balancer, the network and the client.
