Downloadable CA List feature

ProxySG Software - SGOS


Downloadable CA List feature has been introduced in SGOS 6.3 version


When the ProxySG appliance intercepts an HTTPS connection, it terminates the client request and then initiates a new request to the OCS.
The ProxySG must have an up-to-date list of trusted CA certificates to enable the certificate validation process. The ProxySG appliance uses its built-in browser-trusted CA Certificate List (CCL) for this purpose. In previous SGOS versions, the ProxySG appliance’s list of browser-trusted CAs was only automatically updated upon SGOS upgrade and users were able to add manually trusted CA certificates.

From SGOS 6.3 the Downloadable CA List feature is available. The appliance will now automatically download an updated browser trusted list of CAs (trust_package.bctp) every seven days by default. This smart download compares the existing browser-trusted list on the appliance
to the new list only modifies CA certificates that are have been added or deleted since the last update.

To show the current settings (and some additional info, for example download error log): - Blue Coat SG210 Series#show security trust-package
