Yes our load test fully supports HTTPS connections/communications.
Regarding Silverlight, our load test does not run the Silverlight client engine (or Java, or ActiveX or anything similar). No actual browser is used. What it is doing is intelligent echoing back of the HTTP requests that were recorded when the load test was created, including correct handling of dynamic cookie values and other dynamic data generated by the server, sent to the client and expected to be echoed back to the server. Thus it will load your web server/services with canned HTTP requests. It is not capable of generating dynamic/random data in the client to be sent to the server. Although you can data drive a load test to send canned data coming from your data source.
