Article ID: 169371
SSL Visibility Appliance Software
When we have a big list of URLs, we can create a custom category in order to cover all these sites with just one rule. Here are the steps to configure this categorization list.
- Create a local database for the SSLV you need to open a blank document (notepad, notepad++) then use the following syntaxes:
define category category_name
URL or IP
define category my-whitelist
- Save this document with a .bin extension and make sure it is saved using the ANSI encoding format.
- Import the list into the SSLV (Web server needed):
Go to Policies > Host categorization List > Local.
Edit button (pen icon) under Host Categorization Database Settings.
Specify the URL, and connection details. Click OK
Go to the Host Categorization Status and click on Download Database.
The process will start. After download, the Local DB will be ready to use when defining Category lists.
