Enabling hybrid HTTPS notification pages
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security  | v8.5.x
SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the industry standard for transmitting secure data over the Internet. It is based on a system of trusted certificates issued by certificate authorities and recognized by servers.
If you install the Forcepoint SSL certificate for the hybrid service, the hybrid proxy can establish SSL channels with most browsers in order to serve notification pages to the user – for example, a block page if the SSL site is in a category that requires a notification, or the appropriate page if authentication is required.
To preserve performance, only HTTPS traffic is diverted in this manner; HTTP traffic goes through the proxy to the requested site.
To ensure hybrid users can see the notification pages when browsing with HTTPS, you need a root certificate on each client machine that can act as a Certificate Authority for SSL requests to the hybrid proxy.
 
Note 
To install the hybrid root certificate on all clients using the hybrid service:
1.
On the Hybrid Configuration > User Access page, click View Hybrid SSL Certificate.
2.
3.
Once you have distributed the certificate, mark Use the hybrid SSL certificate to display a notification page for HTTPS requests when required, then click OK to cache your changes. Changes are not implemented until you click Save and Deploy and they are then pushed to all locations in cloud (another 15 to30 minutes).
