Applications and app types
Gateway allows you to build DNS, Network, and HTTP policies based on applications and app types. This feature gives you more granular control over how web applications are used on your network.
When you choose the Application selector in a Gateway policy builder, the Value drop-down menu will show all supported applications and their respective app types. Alternatively, you can use the to fetch a list of applications, app types, and ID numbers.
Do Not Inspect applications
Some applications are incompatible with for a variety of reasons, one of which is certificate pinning. This is a process used by applications to verify that the TLS certificate presented from the origin server matches a known, specified list of certificates hardcoded in the application.
This is a countermeasure to man-in-the-middle attacks where an attacker presents a trusted, but false, certificate on behalf of the origin in order to decrypt the traffic. This is exactly what TLS interception in a Secure Web Gateway does, although for the purposes of securing a user’s web traffic.
Gateway automatically groups applications incompatible with TLS decryption into the Do Not Inspect app type. To ensure that traffic gets through to these applications, you can for all Do Not Inspect applications.
Gateway periodically updates the Do Not Inspect app type to include new applications. By creating this Do Not Inspect HTTP policy and selecting all applications within the Do Not Inspect app type, you will ensure that your Do Not Inspect policy will apply to any new applications added to the app type.
Office 365 integration
You can perform a one-click action to bypass TLS decryption for all Office 365 traffic. To enable, go to Settings > Network > Bypass decryption of Office 365 traffic and select Create policy. This will create a for all . This policy also uses our own Cloudflare intelligence to determine which traffic belongs to Office 365.
