Malicious Use of Encryption; Covert Communication in Plain Sight

The malicious use of encryption is growing at an alarming rate according to NSS Labs' BaitNET test infrastructure. Why? Encrypted web communication routinely bypasses enterprise security controls. Left unscanned, these channels are perfect vehicles for hiding infection, command & control and data exfiltration.

This whitepaper investigates the increasing use of encryption for covert communication including statistics, details on encrypted threats and analysis of encrypted attack vectors.
