Clearswift SECURE ICAP Gateway Integration with F5 BIG-LTM

ICAP stands for Internet Content Adaption Protocol and it is a protocol aimed at providing inspection for web content. An ICAP client routes HTTP content to an ICAP server in order to process it or adapt the content. The adapted content is then returned to the ICAP client in the form of an HTTP response or an HTTP request.
