How to send SSL webmail to CSC SSM module

Unanswered Question


We are using an ASA 5540 to allow remote users access over an SSL VPN. We would like to provide Web mail access, but it must be encrypted ( SSL ). This is possible, but the problem arises when you want to scan this ssl traffic with a CSC SSM module.

You can scan webmail, but there is no indication as to how you could scan SSL traffic. Is there a way to change the https traffic to http, in order to send to the CSC SSM module for scanning?

Anybody try this. I think we may only run normal webmail from the inside to the webserver.

The CSC SSM provides protection against viruses, spyware, spam, and other unwanted traffic by scanning the FTP, HTTP, POP3, and SMTP packets that you configure the adaptive security appliance to send to it.
