FortiGate: Blocking Zoom chat but not blocking Zoom meeting

Given that there is no Zoom chat signature available on FortiGate.

 

Is it possible to block the Zoom chat without blocking the Zoom meeting?

 

TIA.

Hello,

 

I do not think it would be possible without developing a custom signature to identify chat traffic.

 

Best regards,

As mentioned by @jintrah_FTNT  so far there is no ready-to-use AppControl signature for the Zoom except for the whole Zoom as an application, so either wait till Fortinet develop it (or not), or try to develop a custom signature, which would be interesting but I guess time consuming.

Hi Yuri,

 

Do you have any article that can be used on how to create this custom signature?

 

Thank you btw.
