Re: TLS proxies for security?!?

"The private citizen in me totally agrees and I hate the idea of breaking end-to-end encryption but IT departments do have a duty to protect end users and the infrastructure from attack and a (properly configured!) TLS proxy does allow this."

We do it (as a bank) and we do not do it for spying on end users. We do it to protect the mass of data we hold about you, our customers.

I really don;t care whether a single person's transactions are compromised; that happens every day for many reasons and are usually customer-caused. What I care about is losing the mass of data and causing a lot of people a lot of pain.

Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few kind of thing.
