  • Dropbox has both a web browser interface and a desktop client (a special folder).
  • Traffic from both the interfaces is SSL based and is identified as ‘dropbox’ App-ID.
  • To identify uploads and downloads:
    • Configure a SSL decryption rule for the traffic and inspect the content inside.
    • With the browser interface, decrypt the traffic and apply a file blocking profile to block upload, download, or both.
    • The desktop client does not accept a MITM certificate and will fail to connect when SSL decryption rules are used.
