I know that KWF has HTTP Policy which allow admins to create whitelists, blacklist, etc. I've been using it and it works very well.

However, those policies do not apply to HTTPS. I'm wondering if there is a way to apply the same HTTP policies to HTTPS.

Right now, If I want to block HTTPS to a specific URL, I have to manually check the IP of the HTTPS server and block that IP. So, in other words, I'm not blocking the URL. I'm actually blocking the IP. This is not an elegant solution if I have to manually block 50 HTTPS sites (whose URLs have already been blocked by HTTP policies).

It would be so much easier to have HTTPS Policies just as we have for HTTP!

Am I missing something here?

HTTPS communication is encrypted between client and server. Firewall can't see into packets to find out what URL is client asking for.
