The Growing Threat of SSL Traffic
The adoption of encrypted Internet traffic has exploded in recent years due to security and privacy concerns. Today, it is estimated that more than 65% of Internet traffic will be encrypted by the end of 2016. This increase in encrypted traffic has created a more secure exchange of data"but it has also created a space in which criminals can linger undetected. Increasingly, criminals are hiding their attacks within Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS). The lack of security effectiveness has led to widespread breaches"resulting in customer costs, lost revenue, regulatory fines, and other issues. How should information security professionals handle this new set of problems?
