The pcap you send to us, does not include any SSL exchange information for us to get the hints we need for detecting OpenVPN. Since all the traffic is encrypted in there, there is nothing for us to see if it’s part of OpenVPN, so unfortunately that is something we can’t identify at this point.

If you had any other traffic that would include a proper SSL exchange between the VPN client, there would be a chance we can get something from it, but I would imagine, VPN clients already include the SSL keys internally so those will probably won’t even show.

Hi Costas and thank you for the answer.

I do have a pcap (in attached document) of the traffic i am trying to
I thought openappid could manage encrypted traffic (and detect openVPN).
To enable SSLPP, I tried to disable:  trustservers and
noinspect_encrypted. But it did not work.

If the traffic is encrypted then it maybe a challenge to identify the
actual OpenVPN traffic.

I am trying to detect openVPN on the port 443 (it already works with
port 1194). Is it supposed to be detect by the default rules ? Or do i
have to write my own custom rules?
