TLS Inspector

TLS Inspector listener filter allows detecting whether the transport appears to be TLS or plaintext, and if it is TLS, it detects the Server Name Indication and/or Application-Layer Protocol Negotiation from the client. This can be used to select a FilterChain via the server_names and/or application_protocols of a FilterChainMatch.
