I'm running a cluster of PA (4.0.8) with SSL Decryption configured.
SSL Decryption is not able to decrypt SSL traffic if the HTTPS session is using TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2.
Test with www.gmail.com
Chrome : OK (see gmail application in the traffic log)
Firefox : idem
IE 8 or 9 with TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 DISABLED : idem
IE 8 or 9 with TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 ENABLED : see only SSL application
Is it solved in 4.1.6 (I plan to upgrade my cluster with this release) ??
we currently do not support decryption of TLS1.2. TLS 1.2 hasn't be broadly supported by browsers until more or less practical TLS 1.0 and block cipher related attacks where demonstrated by cryptographers as proof of concept code. We do see a slow increase of TLS 1.2 support in major browsers lately. Especially Google Chrome and Apple Safari support in their standard configuration now. Since PANOS 5.0, if we detect a TLS1.1 or TLS1.2 session, we first try to downgrade it to TLS1.0 and decrypt. If that fails, we won't decrypt the session and either drop the session or allow it encrypted based upon your policy settings.
Hello, some news about tls 1.2 which belong to PAN-OS 6.0 previous releases of PAN-OS only supported TLS version 1.1. This release provides the Palo Alto Networks firewall with the ability to decrypt inbound sessions and forward proxy sessions that negotiate with TLS 1.2. With this release TLS 1.2 is enabled by default and cannot be disabled. This implementation includes the following details: TLS 1.2 is supported as defined by RFC 5246. The following additional cipher suites are supported: TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256 and TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA256. Newer unsupported versions of TLS (1.3+) will be downgraded to 1.2 when used with the PAN-OS. without any limitation for specific models
Unfortunately I have tested SSL Decryption with Site that supports TLS1.2 and PANOS 6.0.10 with the latest version of firefox (v38.0.5) and I get "Secure Connection Failed" because firefox 38 does not failback from TLS version 1.2 to TLS version 1.1 as mentioned in the following https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tls-error-reports
since TLS1.1 is considered insecure TLS version by mozilla foundation
It seems that the problem appears only if the Cipher suite of the site is TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA256 and SSL Decryption with TLS1.2. This does not apply for Cipher Suite TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256 and TLS1.2/
