If you plan to use the integrated SSL proxy to inspect the secured data, please pay attention to the following facts:

  • You need to know exactly what an SSL proxy is, how it works and how to use it.
  • Technically, inspecting SSL traffic is a man-in-the-middle attack.
  • You need to supply a CA certificate for this proxy. This certificate has to be known to all your clients.
  • If the network connection between the source and destination of an IP package is not reliable, connection interruptions may occur. This may lead to minor issues (slow website) and even major problems like interruptions of server services etc.
