About the project:

Network Packet Brokers is the platform that provides visibility into network traffic using the following set of features:
•    SecureStack: inline decryption/encryption for TLS traffic, out of band decryption

•    Netstack: filtering, aggregation/replication, load balancing.
•    AppStack: application identification.
•    PacketStack: packet deduplication, header stripping, packet trimming, GRE tunneling.

Network Packet Broker (NPB)   is located between the network and the traffic monitoring tools, and it balances, aggregates, decrypts /encrypts, filters or duplicates the network traffic, connecting any network segments to the monitoring products and to the firewall.

SecureStack: Inline Decryption is a Netservice deployed on the NPB, which is decrypting/encrypting TLS traffic and it has two deployment types: active and passive.

It has support for both Forward and Reverse proxy interception and the list of supported ciphers includes TLS 1.0/1.1/1.2 and TLS 1.3 ciphers.

Out-of-Band Decryption is a Netservice that decrypts out of band traffic and sends it to filters or tool ports.

We are testing all the above and the automation is done in Robot with Python.
