Defining SSL filter policies

As soon as the remote server's certificate has been verified, the requested URL will be compared against all the rules in the SSL filter policy.

  • An SSL filter rule describes the action that the SSL proxy needs to perform for a certain category of URLs or specific certificates. For example, you may choose to block all URLs that belong to the Games category.
  • An SSL filter policy is a set of rules that the firewall will read sequentially.
