Exceptions list

In some jurisdictions, SSL interception and decryption by forward proxy is disfavored for some types of websites or disallowed entirely. If necessary, you can use the L2 Exception List configuration to define destinations that should not have its sessions decrypted. You can leverage FortiGuard web filter categories, and you can configure a list of additional destinations.

You associate the L2 Exception List configuration with virtual servers that are in the path of outbound traffic. The virtual server evaluates whether an exception applies before processing the initial SSL client hello. If an exception applies, that connection is passed through, and it is not decrypted.

For information on creating the configuration, see Configuring an L2 exception list.
