Preventing Certificate Warnings

In daily internet surfing you might download a file containing a virus or it can be possible that  you can receive a phishing email that contains a downloader file and when it is launched, it creates an encrypted session to a command and control (C&C) server which further downloads malware onto your computer. Because the sessions in these attacks are encrypted, they might get past your network's security measures and affect to system.

Now to protect your network from these threats or malware , SSL inspection is required and FortiGate uses this technology to unlock encrypted sessions, and see into encrypted packets, find threats, and block them as per defined policies. SSL inspection protects you from attacks that use HTTPS also from other commonly used SSL-encrypted protocols, such as SMTPS, POP3S, IMAPS, and FTPS.

In this lab we will prevent users from receiving a security certificate warning when your FortiGate applies full SSL inspection to incoming traffic using the default certificate

All FortiGates devices have a default certificate that it uses for full SSL inspection. FortiGate also uses this certificate in the default deep-inspection profile. Now inorder to o prevent users from seeing certificate warnings while accessing internet , you can install this certificate on your users' devices.


    You are will be the first.
