Decrypted flag under Monitor Logs

L3 Networker

Is it normal to see Decrypted flag as yes even when there is no decryption policy configured.

So what traffic will PA decrypt even when there is no decrypt policy?

GlobalProtect traffic will show decrypted regardless of whether or not you have a decryption policy setup for it. Other than that I can't think of anything off hand that should have that flag without a decryption entry. 

Hi @InderjitSingh ,

In addition to what @BPry  mentioned,  if you have any URL category with action "Continue" and "Override", basically URL that firewall will send response page. Check this link - How to Serve a URL Response Page Over an HTTPS Session Without SSL Decryption 

But in those cases I think firewall will only decrypt initial request, just to be able to inject the HTTP Redirect, after that I assume nothing is actually decrypted.
