  • Palo Alto Firewall.
  • Any PAN-OS.
  • SSL Decryption.



SSL decryption gives the Palo Alto Networks firewall the ability to see inside of secure HTTP traffic that would otherwise be hidden. SSL decryption can be used to monitor for any signs that a company's valuable intellectual property might be exiting through their network. Palo Alto Networks firewall is able to perform SSL decryption by opening up SSL traffic through an inspection process.

The following table provides a list of valuable resources on understanding and configuring SSL Decryption:
