HTTP Protocol

You can configure how HTTP traffic received from your endpoints is handled. The rules for handling this traffic, act on these fields in an HTTP header:

  • Connection
  • X-Forwarded-For
  • Transfer-Encoding
  • Task
  1. On the user interface for Secure Web Gateway, select Policy > Web Policy > Policy.
  2. From the policy tree, select Common Rules > HTTP Protocol.
  3. Optionally configure criteria to limit the scope of this rule set.
  4. Select the HTTP Protocol rules that you want to enable. When selected, these rules work as follows.
    • Set connection header to closed to block persistent connections — Closes the connection to the endpoint after processing the web request.
    • Remove 'X-Forwarded-For' Header — Removes the X-Forwarded-For header from the web request before forwarding it to a destination.
    • Block chunked transfer encoding between client and proxy — Blocks the transfer method used for streaming data.

Changes to the policy tree, rule sets, or rules are automatically saved. You can publish them to the cloud now or keep working and publish later.
