SSL Decryption for Increased Network Visibility

Kevin Blackburn wrote up his thoughts on Gigamon’s presentation at Networking Field Day this month. They focused their presentation on GigaSECURE, their security visibility platform that allows for inline SSL decryption. They do this with by operating a sanctioned man in the middle capture. This is vital for giving administrators the visibility into traffic needed to ensure secure practice. Kevin’s only concern was in how Gigamon’s trusted certificate were handled, which may lead to a manual process of adding these to devices they can’t be automatically pushed to. But with a predicated 80% of traffic being encrypted in the near future, the tradeoff may well be worth it to gain visibility.
