Identifying applications inside ssl without decrypting

L3 Networker

We have a large amount of ssl traffic which we would like to better break out and identify for clearer reporting. For the most part this is inbound traffic destined to our public application servers, so we know what it is without decrypting it, but it's all lumped together with other "ssl" app traffic in the reports.

Can this be achieved with an app over-ride without defining a custom application, or is there another/better way?

if you want your inbound SSL to fall under a different app ID without decrypting it, the way to do this would be create a custom app and settng an app override rule to reidentify this traffic into this custom app, alternatively you could reuse an existing app but this may cause confusion as ssl will show up as a completely different app

I would recommend decrypting this traffic as it is inbound and could thransport a threat into your network.
