Re: Any downsides to ELB 443 running in Secure TCP mode?

Aaron Huber

With SSL instead of HTTPS you lose the X-Forwarded headers which would be
needed for the apps to know if the traffic came in as secure, which would
only be an issue if you're allowing both 80 and 443 and the apps need to be
able to tell the difference. Otherwise it would be identical as far as I'm
aware. Using HTTPS allows them to inject the headers into the protocol.
