Lab 1.8: Testing

In order to test the configuration, we will open an HTTPS website and observe plain text traffic within the inspection zone.

Task 1 - Issuing Requests

  1. Open a remote desktop (RDP) session to the Windows 7 Outbound Client and log in with the credentials referenced in the lab topology.

  2. Open a web browser and navigate to some HTTPS URLs.

  3. Observe the resigned certificate. (Pay attention to the Issued By line.)


  4. SSH into the Layer 3 Security device with the credentials in the topology. Run a tcpdump with the following parameters:

    sudo tcpdump -i eth5.60 -X

    Observe the plain text HTTP traffic.
