Web Application Firewall treats SSL is also important as you will be dealing with a great amount of encryption and decryption of data during the transactions.
SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
- standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.
- ensures that all data transferred remains private and keep the customer’s data safe.

TLS Client Auth
Prophaze validates the device’s certificate to verify whether it has authorized access to the endpoint, while a user tries to establish a connection with its origin server. TLS Client Auth (Mutual Auth) creates a secure connection between a client such as a device / mobile app, and its origin. If the device doesn’t have a valid client certificate (either missing, invalid or expired,) the connection will be revoked and returns a 403 error status code; else the device is able to establish a secure connection.
Automatic HTTPS Rewrites
While enhancing performance and security Automatic HTTPS Rewrites securely avoids content issues by rewriting insecure URLs from secure known hosts dynamically. Also it enables to take the latest security standards and web optimization features that are only available over HTTPS.
Encrypted Server Name Indicator (SNI)
The capability of Encrypted SNI replacement with the plaintext “server_name” extension expands on TLS, increases the privacy of users. This is done by concealing the destination hostname from intermediaries between the visitor and website.
