Last year I implemented a rule to allow users in my company access to the reddit.com site. It is in our company policy to disallow sharing messages on social media, so I implemented this rule with URL filtering (chat/messages/etc...) and only allowing the appid "reddit-base", not "reddit-posting". This worked at the time, and has stopped functioning properly some time in the past year. Now, users are still limited from messaging/chat/etc... but can post comments and new threads on the site. This relates to SSL decryption as I was digging down the rabbit-hole and think that the "reddit-posting" appid has switched over to "web-browsing". I was wondering : 1. If I implement SSL decryption on reddit, will it pick up the "reddit-posting" appid again? 2. Why do I no longer see "reddit-posting" in my logs? 3. What can SSL decryption do--or can't do--to help me solve this issue? 4. Is this a more-so a question about how PA identifies appids for reddit?
