Securing Team Foundation Server with HTTPS and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

You can configure your Team Foundation Server to use HTTPS and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Using HTTPS and SSL encrypts the network traffic between Team Foundation Server and the Team Foundation clients that request access to Team Foundation Server's Web resources, including team project portals, reports, and work items. You can allow both HTTP and HTTPS with SSL traffic with Team Foundation Server, or you can require Team Foundation Server users to use HTTPS with SSL. 

NoteNote:

Because you can configure Team Foundation Server to support HTTPS and SSL in any of several ways, you should review your options before you choose a walkthrough to follow. To help clarify the process, you can review the topic Team Foundation Server, HTTPS, and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) at the start of this section.
