Q&A: Does Silverline WAF support RDP/RDG protocols?

 

Question

  • Can Silverline WAF support RDP/RDG protocols in our proxies?
  • Are we able to implement RDP protocol in Silverline proxy?

 

Environment

  • Silverline WAF.
  • Proxy/Proxies

 

Answer

RDP is a different protocol than your typical web-applications that use HTTPS. Our WAF-policies only know how to interpret HTTPS. So, applying a WAF-policy to this would only cause false-positive problems, and not really add any security-benefit. It would need to implement a Generic-TCP service for this type of proxies.

  • While we do allow you to pass traffic through your proxies, using a Generic-TCP port, you will not be able to use Web-Application-Firewall (WAF) policies to add security to it.
  • We do offer additional security for non-HTTP applications (Generic-TCP service). But, only in the form of Threat Intelligence profiles, and iRules.
