Why http url flavors do not work with https protocol ? How do i control https webs without having VAS platform ?
Appreciate quick discution,
In a HTTPS transaction, the GET request is encrypted, like the rest of the data payload, so it is not possible for the SCE to identify which URL is requested in an HTTPS transaction.
The solution would be to use an SSL proxy that would terminate the SSL connection from the client, send the HTTP traffic through the SCE and open an other SSL connection to the web server. In this case, the clients would need to install the CA certificate on their browser otherwise they would receive alarms from their browser for every HTTPS page that they would browse, as the certificate wouldn't match the domain. Maybe the SSL module for the Cat6k can do that, I am not a specialist in that area...
With the SCE, the only thing you can do about HTTPS traffic is to work with zones and control access per IP address.
