Google Drive Windows application

Hello,

It seems like the Google Drive windows application application does not work with ssl decryption enabled.

Maybe you need to add it to the list of applications excluded from ssl decryption?

https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/docs/DOC-1423

Is it possible to edit this list?

Re: Google Drive Windows application

Hello,

I am decrypting Google Drive with Riverbed optimization appliance and it works , but it fails when I activate it on PA.

My guess is that it can work SSL decryption, but when PA decrypts it may be blocked/bugging because of some malformed HTTP requests / special cases ....

Re: Google Drive Windows application

There is a way to add your own. I just worked with Palo Alto to "fix" dropbox as with content update 308, *.dropbox has been removed. To re-add it I had to go into configure mode and then:

     set shared ssl-decrypt ssl-exclude-cert "*.dropbox.com"

     and then commit.

show shared ssl-decrypt

ssl-decrypt {

  ssl-exclude-cert *.dropbox.com;

   trusted-root-CA;

   forward-trust-certificate device-panssl;

  forward-untrust-certificate device-panssl;

  }

[edit]

They could not figure out how to remove it, so make sure you want it before adding it.

I am also having problems with Google drive. As a workaround, I bypassed all things google for SSL. I still have a Palo Alto case open to see if they can come up with a better work around.

Theres a whole bunch of google stuff you will have to allow: https://support.google.com/drive/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2589954&topic=14951&ctx=topic

Re: Google Drive Windows application

I was reading that there is a delete command to remove the ssl exclusions:

set shared ssl-decrypt ssl-exclude-cert "*.dropbox.com"

delete shared ssl-decrypt ssl-exclude-cert "*.dropbox.com"
