When you create or configure an HTTPS listener for a high-performance Server Load Balancer (SLB) instance, you can select a Transport Layer Security (TLS) security policy.

Select a TLS security policy.

When you create or configure an HTTPS listener, you can modify the advanced settings on the SSL Certificates page and select a TLS security policy. For more information, see Add an HTTPS listener. Configure a listener

A TLS security policy contains available TLS versions and supported cipher suites.
