Application: Selective deep inspection in security enforcement by a network security system (NSS) (Patent ID: US20240089297A1)

The technology disclosed in this patent application by Netskope Inc. focuses on enhancing security enforcement by a network security system (NSS) through the classification of incoming connection access requests as either loss prevention inspectable or connection preserving based on their conformance with HTTP and HTTPs protocols. The NSS then forwards the loss prevention inspectable requests to a data inspection server for deep inspection, while directly sending connection preserving requests to the destination servers to prevent connection termination and error generation. The method involves receiving connection access requests, comparing them to a bypass list, classifying them, and processing them accordingly based on the classification.

The system described in the patent application includes an endpoint routing client on client devices and a data inspection server. The endpoint routing client identifies connection access requests, classifies them as loss prevention inspectable or bandwidth conservable, and processes them accordingly. The data inspection server receives a subset of connection access requests classified as loss prevention inspectable, processes them by forwarding an inspection subset for deep inspection by a DILPA and sending a non-inspection subset to the destination server. The system also involves deep inspection by the DILPA, bypassing deep inspection for certain data packets, and managing a bypass list for efficient processing. Overall, the technology aims to reduce errors in security enforcement by streamlining the processing of connection access requests based on their classification, ultimately enhancing network security.
