Port 443
« on: June 10, 2014, 07:16:44 PM »
The default traffic policies have port 443 by-passed. Is this required? With the increasing use of https web applications this would prevent any benefit.

Hi Cliff,

Yes agree, it is possible to remove the rule, but compression and deduplication on the encrypted traffic is unlikely to produce any benefits. The bypass rule also helps to keep the encrypted bytes out of the datastore since it has a low hit probability. HTTPS optimization will involve doing a decrypt and re-encrypt, which is the standard way.

HTTPS Caching added in v4.1
HTTPS QoS added in v.4.0 e.g. de-prioritize Facebook, Youtube
