HTTPS Inspection adds support for the scanning of SSL encrypted Web traffic to your Web Security services. In the portal, you configure HTTPS Inspection to your requirements, and activate the service. By default HTTPS Inspection is turned off.
When you implement HTTPS Inspection, SSL encrypted web traffic is routed through the Web Security service infrastructure. With HTTPS Inspection turned on, the following occurs:
SSL encrypted web traffic is scanned for malware
SSL encrypted web traffic is included in the time and the bandwidth quotas that you establish in your URL Filtering policy rules
SSL encrypted web traffic is included in your Web URL Filtering policies
To configure HTTPS Inspection, you choose whether to exclude a website from HTTPS Inspection. You also choose whether you want your users to be able to access sites with certificate errors. By default, when you activate HTTPS Inspection, sites with certificate errors are blocked When a user tries to access a site with a certificate error, a user alert is displayed. You can customize the alert to suit your requirements.
