SSL sniffing of XP

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

SSL sniffing of XP, can be done in number of ways, it can be done with a SDK which is relevant for commercial applications or it can be done with a SSL Sniffer, you can even use Wireshark, but for that you must have the SSL key.


Internet Explorer sniffer

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Download our free Internet Explorer sniffer which is a useful tool for various tasks ranging from debugging your application to debugging web sites. Other Internet explorer sniffers can come with or without SSL/HTTPS decryption support, it can be Open source, or propietary.

Which to use? this is not an easy question to answer because the sniffer choice is really a combination or needs, budget and deployment environment. For example: you can’t use a GPL sniffer like Wireshark for a commercial application, but buying a SDK just to sniff a normal website for a one time debug isn’t making sense as well.


SSL Decrypt

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

There are number of ways to perform SSL Decrypt and it’s up to the programmer to decide what works best for him:

  • Using a product/SDK that isn’t modifying the SSL certificate (like SSL Decryptor) but it’s targeted per specific browser, Komodia’s SSL Decryptor works with FF and IE.
  • Using a product/SDK that performs manipulation on the SSL certificate but isn’t alerting the user (like SSL Digestor), this product is more general and works with all browsers and the popular mail clients.
  • Using open source proxy which changing the certificate and alerts the user, basically they pefrom MITM attack, using these solutions is good for debug purposes.


Winsock lsp ssl trace

Monday, March 1st, 2010

Winsock LSP and SSL is a complex and simple issue 🙂 basically the Winsock LSP sees the SSL session encrypted and can’t see the decrypted content of the session. It’s possible to decrypt SSL sessions, but that’s a topic for another post.

Winsock LSP can be used to trace SSL sessions to their root, you can easily get the following information about a SSL session by using LSP:

  • Originating application.
  • Source Address/Port.
  • Destination address/Port.
  • Certificate.
