Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

Hi,

I am having an ASA5510 with a CSC-SSM-10 module. I am able to block http traffic through the ASA but cannot block https traffic through it. Can anyone please help me in blocking https traffic using the CSC module.

Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

Hi Alex,

To block https traffic through CSC module, you need to run the version 6.6.1125.0 on the CSC module. This version is only compatible with ASA version 8.4.2 and ASDM 6.4.5, kindly go through the release notes for detailed information:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/csc/csc66/release/notes/cscrn66.html

Hope that helps.

Re: Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

HI,

This is one of the limitation of ASA firewall.

Https filtering it will not work with pre versions of IE-9. It will works

from IE-9 on-wards.( IE-9 does not support with Win-XP but support on wards

Vista)

Refer the CSC release guide.

Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

Hi Varun,

The version of the device is the same you have mentioned. I gave facebook.com and *.facebook.com, facebook is getting blocked when accessed as http://www.facebook.com but is accessible by https://www.facebook.com.

Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

Hello Alex,

Did you on the URL filtering include the HTTPS option?

Are you sure you have the same 3 versions that Varun mentioned (CSC version, ASA version, ASDM version)?

If that is correct you should be able to block it, I mean you have the rigth configuration, are you sending the HTTPS traffic to the CSC module via the ASA?

Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

Hello Alex,

Correct the versions are okay, what about the other questions?

Did you include the HTTPS option on the URL filtering  ?

If that is correct you should be able to block it, I mean you have the rigth configuration, are you sending the HTTPS traffic to the CSC module via the ASA?

Julio

Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

Hi Julio,

I have checked the column "Include HTTPS traffic" in the URL blocking.

Also have done the follwing configuration in the ASA for passing all the traffic thru the CSC module.

access-list csc extended permit tcp any any eq https

access-list csc extended permit tcp any any eq ftp

access-list csc extended permit tcp any any eq pop3

access-list csc extended permit tcp any any eq smtp

access-list csc extended permit tcp any any eq www

access-list csc extended deny ip host 192.168.2.2 any

Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

HI Alex,

First you need to send all HTTPS traffic to the CSC module. If all traffic going towards CSC module and still you are facing problem with HTTPS filtering then let me know which browser you are using.

Because HTTPS traffic filtering will support only from Internet Explorer 9.

But it is works with Firefox.

Re: Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

HI,

This is one of the limitation of ASA firewall.

Https filtering it will not work with pre versions of IE-9. It will works

from IE-9 on-wards.( IE-9 does not support with Win-XP but support on wards

Vista)

Refer the CSC release guide.

Re: Need to block HTTPS traffic in CSC module

HI Alex George,

In the URL filtering, uncheck the unrated sites in the Generel tab.

And also check the configuration in the webreputation.
