comment What threats are posed by SSL connections?
I know I can implement IDS systems that scan encrypted traffic by setting them up with the SSL certs but is that necessary? What is the likelihood of a threat, on a client, hijacking the SSL connection, say to OWA, and then attacking the CAS server. I appreciate there are quite a few factors to consider in that question as environment is part of the probability.

comment What threats are posed by SSL connections?
That's what I was thinking, I appreciate SSL is a protection in itself but if a client has established a session how much risk is there that a threat, on that client, will use the SSL session to attack the server your connected to. I understand Exchange is hardened to this but I'm not sure of the scope or probability of the risk. Thanks for your replies.
