NSA Releases Cyber Advisory: Managing Risk from Transport Layer Security Inspection

Last Revised

The National Security Agency (NSA) has released a Cyber Advisory that addresses managing risk from Transport Layer Security Inspection (TLSI). This short, informative document defines TLSI (a security process that allows incoming traffic to be decrypted, inspected, and re-encrypted), explains some risks and associated challenges, and discusses mitigations.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users and administrators to review the NSA Cyber Advisory and apply the information, as appropriate. See CISA’s Alert on risks associated with HTTPS inspection.
