well with enough know how and "hacking" of the firewall you can look at anything you want thats transmitted through it (not just SSL traffic)

i'm assuming this is purely for "Research" purposes

the main thing is listening into the traffic flow on standardised protocols like HTTP(s) that means you can easily intercept cookie data, form data (passwords etc) and possible even change them

ultimately what you can do is only limited by your imagination and "hacking" skills - the firewall has done the hard part for you though (the ssl decryption) all you have to do is then get in and listen to the traffic in its decrypted state (something i suspect the firewall vendors have likely made quite difficult to do for obvious reasons)

I would have thought so but nowadays the main selling point is dpi. How then can you offer deep packet inspection at the same time not allowing admins to read data inside a packet.

This particular firewall is basing on trust and some US laws to stop admins abusing social security numbers and passwords they can get.

Bt from my sixth sense, they are very keen to tell me l can do that
