QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections, pronounced "quick") is an experimental transport layer network protocol developed by Google that supports a set of multiplexed connections between two endpoints over User Datagram Protocol (UDP).
When a search string is provided in the browser address bar, Chrome tries to send the request through UDP. The client side/proxy side PCAP shows UDP traffic and lines such as the following:
1 0.002262 192.168.158.102 126.96.36.199 UDP Source port: 55705 Destination port: https
2 0.050983 188.8.131.52 192.168.158.102 UDP Source port: https Destination port: 55705
The appliance does not intercept UDP traffic in a transparent deployment, so the firewall must either allow or deny it; the appliance has no control over this connection.
