WAF Recommendation while Traefik in place

What are best practiceis of placing WAF in front of Traefik?
I mean dealing with Cert encryption and decryption twice (one in WAF e.g. Nginx and the second in traefik) is not recommended, so is there a way we can place WAF inside traefik.
Note: We have traefik integrated with Docker swarm

Usually a WAF can be implemented in a many different ways. Most used is, in front of your services why? First to not generate extra works loads to your backends and so forth.

You can read good docs about WAF, perimeter guard application in the internet.

If you deployed traefik on AWS/GCP/Azure, you use the existed WAF solution provided by them.

All the best
