MS Update and SSL Decryption

L2 Linker

We are having a problem with MS update and SSL decryption. Currently when a windows machine goes out to get its updates it fails. This appears to be because of the SSL decryption. I tested this by excluding one PC from encryption and it worked just fine. So my question is what are other Administrators doing to allow MS Updates to by-pass encryption?


Thank you bat,

I think now it´s a littlebit more clear to me.

So the exclusion of ms-update from SSL-Decryption does not work with Windows-Update.

Does anyone know if the no-decrypt policy for URL and * is working for all Windows Versions - ie Win7, Win8, Win8.1 and Win10-Beta?


Hi Alex,

Yes, I have tested and it is working. However, I am not sure about Win10-Beta version.



Thanks, Ramya!

I´ve added and * to our no-decrypt policy and it seems to work for me, too.
