Snort does not have the ability to do any kind of SSL decryption on its own. These facebook subclassifications are only able to be used if you were running your traffic behind an SSL appliance which allows the decryption of your traffic.

My query is do we have to turn on the SSL decryption function on snort for detecting ssl applications like facebook-chat, facebook-games which are only shown once the user is authenticated to facebook and the entire communication is in SSL after that.
