EdgeConnect provides deduplication for Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypted WAN traffic by supporting the use of SSL certificates and other keys.

This report summarizes the SSL certificates installed on appliances for decrypting non-SaaS traffic.

  • EdgeConnect decrypts SSL data using the configured certificates and keys, optimizes the data, and transmits data over an IPSec tunnel. The peer EdgeConnect appliance uses configured SSL certificates to re-encrypt data before transmitting.

  • Peers that exchange and optimize SSL traffic must use the same certificate and key.

  • For the SSL certificates to function, the following must also be true:

    • The tunnels are in IPSec or IPSec UDP mode for both directions of traffic.

    • In the Optimization Policy, TCP acceleration and SSL acceleration are enabled.

Use this page for SSL Certificates when the server is part of your enterprise network and has its own enterprise SSL certificates and key pairs.

NOTE: For SSL decryption of SaaS services, use the Configuration > Overlays & Security > SSL > SSL for SaaS page. Because SaaS servers are external to your enterprise network, the appliance creates a substitute certificate, which then must be signed by a Certificate Authority (CA).

EdgeConnect provides deduplication for Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encrypted WAN traffic by supporting the use of SSL certificates and keys:

  • EdgeConnect decrypts SSL data using the configured certficates and keys, optimizes the data, and transmits data over an IPSec tunnel. The peer EdgeConnect appliance uses configured SSL certificates to re-encrypt data before transmitting.

  • Peers that exchange and optimize SSL traffic must use the same certificate and key.

  • Use this page to directly load the certificate and key into this appliance.

    • You can add either a PFX certificate (generally, for Microsoft servers) or a PEM certificate.

    • The default is PEM when PFX Certificate File is deselected.

    • If the key file has an encrypted key, enter the passphrase needed to decrypt it.

  • Before installing the certificates, you must do the following:

    • Configure the tunnels bilaterally for IPSec mode.

      To do so, access the Configuration > Networking > Tunnels > Tunnels page, select the tunnel, and for Mode, select IPSec.

    • Verify that TCP acceleration and SSL acceleration are enabled.

      To do so, access the Configuration > Templates & Policies > Optimization Policies page, and then review the Set Actions.
