SYNOPSIS
With the ever-increasing cyber threat, we have moved towards all-encrypted IP networks in order to secure our information and to allow information with different sensitivities to share the same infrastructure. This is a powerful approach, but within it, there are dangers to avoid, associated with traffic analysis and machine learning, as well as threats to some of our most useful tools such as deep packet inspection and WAN acceleration.

This presentation looks at the issues, and for many, the surprising results, that are now arising with an all-encrypted approach as the publicly published research starts to highlight the art of the possible.
