I have tried various WIN 7 firewall outbound monitoring software add-ons and they plus native WIN 7 firewall outbound blocking and all have the same problem. When using IE9 and I assume this also applies to earlier versions, WIN 7 firewall cryptographic service dials out to validate certificate authorities. I know it is CAs since I have checked the IP address it is trying to connect to. I have watched it do these connects using cryptograhic service however WIN 7 firewall plus the add-on's to it I have tried all block these CA validation dial outs. I have always created an outbound rule for cryptographic service, TCP ports 80, 443. Is this a bug in WIN 7 or do one of those three sub-services cryptographic uses have to be set up as an outbound firewall rule? If the later, what the heck is the name of the service?
