Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor

Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor enables transparent SSL/TLS traffic decryption for further analysis by DLP/IDS/IPS systems.

The appliance works in transparent bridge mode intercepting selected network traffic. SSL sessions pass through Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor transparently so the client software thinks it connects directly to the target server as it uses the original address of the target host. The decrypted network traffic is forwarded to the dedicated DLP/IDS/IPS device for evaluation. Lynx SSL Inspector encrypts data again and sends it over to the target server. The DLP/IDS/IPS systems can order Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor to terminate the connection. Unencrypted traffic, which can also pass through Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor, is forwarded to the IDS/IPS without being modified.


Integration with DLP, IDS, IPS systems provides them with the insight into encrypted data stream

High Efficiency

Allows feeding a coupe of external DLP, IDS, IPS with data simultaneously


Reducing the load of security solutions by delegating decryption process

CA exchange

Transparent certificate exchange with use of Lynx SSL/TLS Decryptor


High throughput of the appliance allows to simplify the infrastructure


  • signed and self-signed certificates handling
  • Server Name Indication (SNI)
  • OCSP support
  • decrypt once feed many
  • selective whitelisting based on categories
  • network bypass
  • whitelisting source and target hosts
  • whitelist subscription service
  • supports connections initialized as encrypted (such as HTTPS) as well as protocols, which can begin encrypted transmission by executing the StartTLS command (e.g. SMTP)
  • TLS SNI (Server Name Indication) extension support
