Simple question about CSC-SSM

Unanswered Question


I must block a HTTPS website using CSC-SSM on a ASA 5520 but it looks like it won't block HTTPS traffic at all so I've been searching around and I found that "Traffic that moves through HTTPS cannot be scanned for viruses and other threats by the CSC-SSM software.".

Anyone has sucessfully blocked HTTPS traffic using CSC-SSM?

Which other blocking methods would you recommend? ASA's URL filtering?

Thanks in advice.


I have this problem too.

hi Guilherme

the idea with https it is a secured http with sslor tls which is the same idea with vpn/IPSEC where the traffic is tunnled and cannot be inspected before get devrypted

which wshould be the same with all vendors

if u can inspect the https and scan it then it is not secure enough !! right :)

good luck

ASA's URL filtering?


Websense and n2he do support https filtering.Check their website for further details.
