Temporarily disable SSL decryption

L4 Transporter

Hi

 

I was wondering if anybody knew if the temporary disable SSL decryption is actually broken or it is my firewall, I needed to switch it off as I was having issues getting to sso.paloaltonetworks.com (which oddly is not covered by exclusion list) and found that even after running the command set system setting ssl-decrypt skip-ssl-decrypt yes, the traffic was still decrypted, I had to disable the rules and commit to stop the firewall from decrypting, I was hoping to avoid this as it is a PA-220 and takes an age to commit configs, if anybody has any ideas please let me know, I am currently running 10.1.12

 

Thanks in advance,

Hi @laurence64 ,

 

The "set system setting ssl-decrypt skip-ssl-decrypt yes" should work for you. Is it possible that the traffic post entering the command had an existing session prior to command?

Hi @JayGolf 

 

That is a good point, so I cleared the CACHE on the browser as the cert can sometimes get stuck there and in the end used a private browser but still decrypted, it was only when I disabled the decryption rule that the traffic was no longer decrypted, but to be fair I did not clear the sessions on the firewall, I will give this a try later today as an experiment, as far as I am aware there are no issues with the command so you are right it should work.

 

Thank you for replying so quickly!

So, It worked for you?

Spoiler
It's possible the SSL decryption feature may have specific requirements or configuration nuances on your PA-220 firewall. The sample essay on the death penalty at https://ukwritings.com/samples/death-penalty-is-no-effective was exactly what I needed to guide my own writing. It was well-researched and presented strong arguments, helping me understand how to structure my essay. ukwritings definitely knows how to tackle complex topics effectively.

Hi All,

 

Firstly sorry for the delay in responding, I did say I would check the existing session theory, I did clear the sessions and it worked as expected, however the browser still held the Firewall cert until cache was cleared, if that makes sense.
