Issue/Introduction

This KB is to assist Packetshaper administrators to classify the YouTube traffic seen by the Packetshaper.
 

Cause


YouTube traffic is currently being transmitted using the Google QUIC Protocol. This makes it difficult for the Packetshaper to identify this traffic.

 

Resolution

Bluecoat have created a new Plug-in to enhance YouTube classification to identify traffic over Google QUIC protocol.

Minimum version for plug-in to load : 9.2.1

NOTE: YouTube is classified as a web application using the Blue Coat WebPulse cloud service. Therefore, WebPulse must be enabled and functioning
properly in order for the YouTube plug-in to work.
