WTF FortiGate/Fortinet TCP/8008 and /8010

Noticed odd traffic to Canada IPs from FAZ and found they are in use by the FortiGate for the FortiGuard block pages as well as the FortiGuard override pages.

How to close TCP ports 8008 and 8010 on a FortiGate unit



QUIC Protocol udp/443

QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections, pronounced quick) is an experimental transport layer network protocol developed by Google. QUIC supports a set of multiplexed connections between two endpoints over User Datagram Protocol (UDP), and was designed to provide security protection equivalent to TLS/SSL, along with reduced connection and transport latency, and bandwidth estimation in each direction to avoid congestion. QUIC’s main goal is to optimize connection-oriented web applications currently using TCP. An experimental implementation is being put in place in Chrome by a team of engineers at Google.
