Lightboard Lessons: The Problem Of TLS Visibility
Internet traffic today is encrypted at a rate of almost 90%. Our F5 Labs team wrote a TLS Telemetry Report last year that outlines several Internet-related encryption statistics. Also, Google serves up a page with near-real-time statistics related to Internet encrypted traffic. These reports show a staggering amount of encryption used across the Internet today.
While encryption is a great benefit to securing web traffic, it also presents a problem for inspecting that traffic. Many organizations need to send traffic through security devices/services to ensure they are not allowing malicious traffic into their network. But this presents a problem of organizing and managing encryption keys in addition to slowing down the user experience. In this video, John outlines these issues and explains why they are a problem. Stay tuned for more follow-up content showing how F5 can help solve this problem. Enjoy!
