List,

The issue you will probably see with Skype is that it can be hard to differentiate between its traffic and authorized (or unauthorized) https traffic.  This can come up if you have an intruder who is connecting to his remote site via ssl (to steal data or to upload tools, trojans, bots, whatever).

So far as I understand, Skype's creators consider this to be a feature.  But it can make your intrusion analysis rather difficult.

Regards,
Pete
