iCloud- Base App ID

L4 Transporter

Hi Team,


We are unable to see iCloud-uploading and iCloud-downloading Apps in our traffic logs, All the traffic identified as iCloud-base. 


Can someone help me on this ?

Hi @SubaMuthuram ,


It might seem silly but are you decrypting the traffic successfully ?

Hi @kiwi ,


We are successfully decrypting traffic and we are able to block the upload through file-blocking. but only issue with the App-ID.

I would honestly expect this and I wouldn't expect to ever see iCloud-uploading or iCloud-downloading. The reason for this is that the firewall actually has built-in decryption exclusions for a lot of Apple domains including iCloud. Unless you disable those default exceptions (which will break Apple services due to cert-pinning and client certificates) I wouldn't expect to actually see either of these identified properly anymore.

Ho @BPry,


We have excluded the iCloud from the Default decryption exclusion. After that only we are able to block the uploading through file blocking.
