Hello @pvrm123 

PaloAlto firewall supports both inbound and outbound SSL decryption.

In Inbound Inspection mode, PAN-OS will not act as a proxy with SSL traffic that matches the policy. Instead, PAN-OS will attempt to decrypt this SSL traffic 'on-the-fly' by eavesdropping on the SSL handshake and using the associated Certificate (Key Pair) configured in the decryption policy.

For more details, you can refer to the following Knowledge Base (KB) article:
