With the new Reputable Websites option in 5.4.1 I'd really like to understand what actually defines a reputable website. I understand from the documentation that it is a "secure white list database" of "reputable domain names that cain be excluded from ssl deep inspection".
When working with something that can potentially poke a very large hole in my security fabric I'd really like a better understanding of exactly how this works. For any Fortinet staff, if this is something proprietary a general answer would be great..
Although I'm looking for a general answer I'm mostly concerned with how sites that include user content are handled.
I could be wrong, but I believe it's the list in System -> Reputation. You can type in a site like www.google.com and see the reputation, maybe if it's listed as 'trusted' here it's passed through inspection?
