Ability to Scan Files for Viruses in the DMZ before arrival in Secure Zone

Need a facility to contact a server via ICAP to scan files (similar to how QuickFile) works. This can be achieved by installing SSP perimeter servers on the virus server in its zone and have SSP engines leverage a persistent connection between the AV server and SSP, using ICAP as the transport. To facilitate a quarantined zone, the perimeter server when requesting a persistent connection to the engine's local perimeter server would need to be authorized via key exchange (similar to how the Command Line Adapter 2 is set up now in SBI).

    This enahncement has been implemented in Secure Proxy 6.0.1 release in Jan 2020. The Virus scanning support is currently limited to SFTP protocol however support for HTTP (covers AS2 use cases) and Connect Direct will be implemented in Q2 2020

    We also need to ensure the scan is also for the encrypted files for example coming through an AS2 channel.
