Regarding the transparent SSL inspection, did you inform your users that their private SSL connections can be potentially disclosed? I assume that you had to import your own CA certificate into all Web browsers in your organization. Isn't it? In general do you have any information regarding the SSL inspection in Europe and US jurisdictions?
