speedtest is not correctly identified with and without decryption 10.2.4 latest app-id

L3 Networker

hi guys, 


I searched through and it looks like it's an know issue that speedtest.net is not correctly identified by app-id 


I use app -default setting on the policy 

The policy cannot  really see speedtest.net's traffic and identifies  the traffic as ssl, speedtest uses customer port tcp 8080 which is obviously not part of ssl app id defined by pal alto 


to bypass i have added under service custom port 8080 tcp and app as ssl, not speedtest app id as it was not identified and working  anyway  - it works this way 


but later on I have enabled ssl decryption for testing purposes, hoping  that the app will be correctly identified byt the firewall, however it did not work, palo alto still sees  speedtest .net as pure ssl traffic 


what can be a problem?


thank you
