Enforce Encrypted External Access to the Postgres Repository without Affecting Internal Communication

There are several options to configure SSL, also for accessing the Postgres repository, as described in this article

https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/server/en-us/ssl_config_postgres.htm

 

None of them fulfills our needs which are:

  • do NOT encrypt internal communication for performance reasons (secure because behind a firewall).
  • enforce encryption of external communication, especially to the Postgres repository (not protected by a firewall).

 

So please provide a way to enforce SSL for external communication only, especially for accessing the Postgres repository.

This then provides the best of both, security and performance.
