Technical Reading: Encrypted Traffic Analysis
Encryption is considered as security by design. It undoubtedly helps to avoid risks such as communication interception and misuse. Therefore it is natural that all responsible organizations adopt encryption as an important way of protecting business critical applications and services. According to Gartner 80 % of web traffic will be encrypted in 2019.
Ironically, encryption as a security measure created a grey zone of traffic with unlimited space for attackers to hide their activity. And when the volume of encrypted traffic grows year by year, this is a challenge for security professionals to keep their assets secure.
