Certificate Unresolvable - SSL Scanner rule set

Can anyone explain what all the Certificate Unresolvable are and how they are getting logged?

I can't find anything in the SSL Scanner rule set that is incrementing the counter.

is this bad?

I'm trying to determine this as well, did you by chance get clarification on what the "unresolvable" represents?

Re: Certificate Unresolvable - SSL Scanner rule set

In my quick testing, "unresolvable" was returned when I disabled blocking of "self-signed" certs (as an example).

So I would guess that this means the Web Gateway was not able to determine if the certificate was valid. A self-signed certificate, a unknown root ca, or incomplete path could be one of the reasons for seeing this.

In this thread, I created a ruleset which logs all blocks recorded by SSL scanner:

This was then turned into a ruleset in the online ruleset library:

You could log these incidents then perhaps correlate them to the spikes if you wanted.
