In Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010, you can specify an exclusion list from HTTPS inspection, that is, the list of sites that are excluded from HTTPS inspection. You cannot define an inclusion list, that is, the list of sites for which the HTTPS inspection is applied.


To resolve this problem, install the service pack that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

2555840 Description of Service Pack 2 for Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway 2010


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

More Information

There can only be one DomainNameSet in the inclusion list. If the inclusion list is set, the HTTPS Inspection Exclusion tab in the UI is disabled.

To set the inclusion list for HTTPS inspection, follow these steps:

  1. Create a DomainNameSet for the HTTPS inspection inclusion list.

  2. Copy the following script into Notepad save it with the file name ConfigureHTTPSiInclusionList.vbs.

    If WScript.Arguments.Count > 1 Then
    WScript.Echo "Usage:" & vbCRLF & _
    " ConfigureHTTPSiInclusionList <DomainNameSetName> - add DomainNameSet to HTTPS Inspection inclusion list" & vbCRLF & _
    " ConfigureHTTPSiInclusionList - remove DomainnameSet VPS" & vbCRLF
    End If

    GUID = "{da361caa-f5ed-461a-ac23-13a02eec9867}"
    Attribute = "InclusionDomainNameSetGUID"

    Set Arr = CreateObject("FPC.Root").GetContainingArray()
    Set VendorSets = Arr.ArrayPolicy.WebProxy.OutboundHTTPSInspectionConfiguration.VendorParametersSets

    On Error Resume Next
    if WScript.Arguments.Count > 0 Then
    DomainNameSetName = WScript.Arguments(0)
    Set DomainNameSet = Arr.RuleElements.DomainNameSets.Item(DomainNameSetName)
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    WScript.Echo "DomainNameSet " & DomainNameSetName & " does not exist"
    End If
    End If

    Set VendorSet = VendorSets.Item( GUID)
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    Set VendorSet = VendorSets.Add( GUID )
    WScript.Echo "No existing VendorSet."
    WScript.Echo "Existing VendorSet found. Values in it:"
    for each name in VendorSet.allNames
    WScript.Echo " ", name, "=", VendorSet.Value(name)
    WScript.Echo "-------------------------------------"
    End If

    If WScript.Arguments.Count > 0 Then
    Val = DomainNameSet.PersistentName
    WScript.Echo "Setting ", Attribute, " = ", Val
    VendorSet.Value(Attribute) = Val
    WScript.Echo "Deleting", Attribute
    End If


    Sub CheckError()
    If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    WScript.Echo "An error occurred: 0x" & Hex(Err.Number) & " " & Err.Description
    End If
    End Sub
  3. Run the following command:

    cscript ConfigureHTTPSiInclusionList.vbs <DomainNameSetName>
