Citrix ADC

Content inspection

In recent times, there is an expansion of device types to display various multimedia content. The device types can be of mobile handsets to tablets, and to desktops. Intermediate infrastructure providers need to transform the original content from a web server to a format suitable for the device that asks for the content. The external devices inspect the content that transcodes and send it back to the client. Commonly used protocol to achieve this is ICAP. ICAP enables the Citrix ADC appliance to be put in various deployments. ICAP uses the content inspection technique that inspects data for malware and security issues.

HTTP/2 is not compatible with content inspection. The applications using the HTTP/2 might not function properly if the traffic is sent through the content inspection.
