Deploying SSL Decryption with a Palo Alto Networks Firewall

Network Security Systems, including firewalls, can be configured to control (permit or deny) encrypted traffic, but cannot decipher the contents of the encrypted communication. The Transport Layer Security (TLS), along with it’s predecessor Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, have become extremely popular choices for encrypting network communication, especially Internet web server traffic. Palo Alto Networks firewalls offer features to decrypt SSL/TLS traffic, providing increased visibility and threat protection. This lab exercise will walk you through enabling those features.
