Stop savvy crims from subverting SSL encryption

Supplied by Blue Coat Systems on Friday, 24 April, 2015


SSL encryption is a key security component of the modern internet, but cybercriminals have started turning the technology on its head, using encryption to cloak attacks or exfiltrate data after a successful breach.

Encrypted traffic is invisible to conventional network security devices, and attempting to decrypt traffic to inspect it risks compromising the privacy of employees and customers.

Fortunately, a solution is at hand in the form of a technology known as encrypted traffic management. Devices such as SSL visibility appliances can be used to decrypt SSL for inspection while maintaining an end-to-end encrypted session between client and server.
