Web Control Self Signed Certificate


Our firewall on our perimeter keeps alerting me that my endpoints are connecting to a server on Intel's network that is using a self-signed certificate. It appears to be: https/tcp 60523 443 1-Trusted 2-Optional-1 ProxyInspect: HTTPS domain name match (HTTPS-proxy.2-00) HTTPS-Client.Standard.3 proc_id="https-proxy" rc="592" msg_id="2CFF-0003" proxy_act="HTTPS-Client.Standard.3" rule_name="Default" sni="" cn="TrustedSourceServer_IMQA01" ipaddress="" geo_src="USA" geo_dst="USA"

Does anyone know why Web Control doesn't use valid TLS certificates?

Re: Web Control Self Signed Certificate

The certificate is not corrupted or expired. The certificate is self-signed by McAfee. This is for historical reasons in the first generation GTI service (which uses a bespoke protocol, client & server).
