Is it possible for a web page to discover if SSL decryption is active?

DUPLICATE POST - please see Decryption: sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial for further info.


Hi folks,

We recently re-activated SSL decryption in some of our branch offices. Now of course reports are coming in that certain web pages can't be displayed correctly anymore. Our Italian collegues for example report that they have problems with Google (also see attachment).

Is is possible for a web site owner to implement a check on the client browser (e.g. with JavaScript?) if an SSL decryption is active or not? Always assuming that no client-certificates are being used of course.

What could we do on our side to still enable SSL decryption for such sites?

Thanks for any information.

I doubt that there is a way to detect if a site is being detected..

However, what is nature of the problem? Are they having problems like in this post: Decryption: sec_error_reused_issuer_and_serial ?

Oh, exactly. That's the same issue.

Thanks for your hint. I'll mark this discussion as "solved" and will use the other post for further troubleshooting.
