I am testing SSL decryption and it seems to work fine except when Http redirection is involved. E.g. when you try to connect to Https://gmail.com , google redirects you to https://www.google.com and it gives me a certificate error because of the hostname in the cert does (www.google.com in this case)not match with the hostname that you are connecting to (gmail.com originally). Is there some way of working around this ? I am using PANOS 4.0.4.
Hi Sunil did you ever find out the answer to your question?
I'm running into the same issue on a project I'm working on due to a coworkers temporary incapacitation. If it go to https://www.gmail.com I will get an error saying The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website’s address. If I view the certificate I see that by my PA-2020(which is a trusted root) however the certificate has been issued to mail.google.com hence the error because the browser is expecting to see a certificate for www.gmail.com. Figured I'd check the forums before opening a case
My opinion is the following : www.gmail.com is hosted on same server than www.google.com , to achieve that Google didn't create (for once) a multi SAN SSL certificate but relies on TLSv1 feature that allows Client and Server to negociate which certificate to use.
If client asks for www.gmail.com, Server will present gmail.com certificate, if Client asks mail.google.com during TLS negociation then Server will present mail.google.com certificate.
As PA seems to fails explicitly on those I have several theories:
