ASA IPS HTTPS Inspection

hello all, quick question which i'm hoping someone can answer.

i was thinking of installing an IPS module in our corporate firewall - Cisco ASA 5520. Does anybody know how the IPS inline sensor inspects encrypted traffic, or can it do that? i'm thinking of clients going out to the web on port 443, and the traffic is encrypted as it traverses the ASA.

Was just wondering.

thanks in advance.

Hi,

You cannot inspect encrypted traffic. You have to decrypt it and then forward to IPS.
