ssl-decrypt exclude-cache ---SSL_CLIENT_CERT

 

when i run below command 

 

show system setting ssl-decrypt exclude-cache

 

VSYS SERVER APP TIMEOUT REASON DECRYPTED_APP PROFILE EXCLUSION_LIST_MATCH

13.71.172.130:443 ssl 42077 SSL_CLIENT_CERT undecided default No

 

does this mean that PA can not decrypt the ssl traffic due to client cert?

 

what can be actual reason behind this?

That's correct. The "SSL_CLIENT_CERT" means that the site is doing certificate-based client authentication.

 

A client cert can't be spoofed because you cannot generate a client cert on the fly that matches the CA requested by the server, so the firewall adds it to the exclude cache.
