Application Control Bypass Workshop


Application control feature is being widely used by many next-generation firewalls. With this feature, security administrators can control applications while controlling traditional Layer4 network traffic.
In this research, Leaders of Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls are selected and the identification techniques and management of applications on these next-generation firewalls are analysed. The results of the research show us that there are easy ways to bypass application control features of these products. In this workshop, the outcomes of the research and a PoC tool that can act like HTTP and HTTPS protocol traffic and send other protocols inside a tunnel will be introduced.
