Why Netwrix products connect to CloudFlare or GlobalSign
KB1873 | Last review: Sep 22, 2014 | Netwrix Auditor | All
|Question||Netwrix is attempting to reach an external IP address belonging to CloudFlare. Why?|
|Answer||Netwrix setup files and .dll libraries are signed with a certificate, issued by GlobalSign.
When the product runs, Windows or .Net runtime checks this certificate, as a part of this check there is a request to update the Certificate Revocation List and it is sending it to crl.globalsign.com, that is using the IP range assigned to CloudFlare ISP.
There is a Microsoft Technet article on how to configure Certificate Revocation.
Lack of access to any GlobalSign server does not affecting the product functionality.
