Is Encrypted Traffic Monitoring Worth It?

In the race to make our users safer, have we reduced our visibility? Encrypting traffic with TLS everywhere means that our users can use online banking and protect their privacy without worry of theft or eavesdropping. However those same protections also obfuscate malicious traffic and keep our security personnel from finding attackers. Should we implement newer methods of analyzing encrypted traffic? Is it reliable? Or are we just guessing? In this episode, Tom Hollingsworth, Jasper Bongertz, and Dominik Pickhardt discussed whether or not encrypted traffic monitoring is really worth it.
