Hi Everyone,

No info on Wanos and SSL? Does this mean SSL is not supported?

SSL is an encrypted protocol. Kindly refer to our article on how Wanos handles encrypted protocols.

Hi Nqny, Alex,

Please first see the FaQ on encrypted protocols at http://wanos.co/docs/docs/frequently-asked-questions/encrypted-protocols/

In summary all features are enabled except for Compression and Deduplication. HTTPS is most likely already Gzipped so it is really only deduplication that is not supported for SSL. To offset this, SSL Object caching is supported via WebCache. This is intended to be used within an enterprise and to improve the performance of an enterprise HTTPS application. It is required to use a SSL certificate on the appliance. It can be a self signed certificate. It is recommended to use a certificate that can be placed in the trusted list on the workstations.

Note the SSL caching feature is not intended to cache all Internet traffic. We get this request frequently. Please have a look at Squid if you would like to bake your own SSL caching server for Internet traffic.

Please see the SSL Caching documentation for steps on how to enable this for an enterprise HTTPS application at:
