SSH Proxy decryption requires no certificates and decrypts
inbound and outbound SSH sessions and ensures that attackers can’t
use SSH to tunnel potentially malicious applications and content.
Proxy does not require certificates and the key used to decrypt
SSH sessions is generated automatically on the firewall during boot
up. With SSH decryption enabled, the firewall decrypts SSH traffic
and blocks and or restricts the SSH traffic based on your decryption
policy and decryption profile settings. Traffic is re-encrypted
as it exits the firewall.
Ensure that the appropriate interfaces are configured
as either virtual wire, Layer 2, or Layer 3 interfaces. Decryption
can only be performed on virtual wire, Layer 2, or Layer

Although Decryption profiles are
optional, it is a best practice to include a Decryption profile
with each Decryption policy rule to prevent weak, vulnerable protocols
and algorithms from allowing questionable traffic on your network.
