Solution for "SSL decryption bypass for Anydesk"

L1 Bithead

Hello,

 

I am being asked a lot about why is Anydesk getting a "decrypt-error" end reason when SSL Decryption is active.

Here is a simple explanation and how to overcome this.

 

What you usually going to do with this kind of errors is creating a Decryption bypass rule for Anydesk (in this example)

Since is it impossible to bypass based on application, you would probably use a Custom URL category with a wildcard (*.anydesk.com), and apply it in a bypass rule. Unfortunately, this doesn't work (I'm not sure why, I think Anydesk uses IP addresses and not URLs)

The other option I came across is using an FQND (relays.net.anydesk.com) published in one of the related articles, that also didn't work for me. It was not consistent.

 

Then I found that Anydesk is being bypassed by default in PANOS (Device -->  Certificate management --> SSL Decryption Exclusion).

 

Then why isn't it being bypassed?!

Well, it is because of the certificate Anydesk uses. It is using a Self-Signed certificate, and your device does not trust it (yet).

This is the reason for the decrypt-error.

 

Basically, what you would like to do now is:

Start a packet capture and export the CA certificate.

Then, import the certificate to your device, and mark it as a trusted CA.

Commit, and now Anydesk should work.

 

I am sharing here the CA certificate currently being used by Anydesk.

 

Copy the text below to a text file and rename it to ".crt"
