It is possible to do TLS termination for TCP traffic.  You can find
more information on this topic here:

The documentation is for nginx-plus but there is no difference here
with nginx.

For UDP the situation is cumbersome.

We had a experimental patch for that while ago

but failed to found any real use cases therefore we stopped maintain
it. The second patch should work with nginx-1.13.9 though.

We'll be grateful for more information about your specific usage,
brief overview, what kind of backends you use etc.
