Recommended Posts

As I understand it I can achieve decrypted ssl with a mitm, I want to be able to decrypt ssl in wireshark for my own personal use and so I can see the actual http and not just ssl traffic.

From what I have read I need

-A SSL connection

-A Mitm Proxy

- A certificate for the proxy (does not have to be signed for my self I can just tell firefox to accept).

-Wireshark

.... So how can I get the Mitm set up, what software it out there for windows xp to do this (free if possible)?

-Wireshark

=- Fire up Backtrack3;

=- Open up a shell: "ettercap -G";

=- Scan for hosts;

=- View host list;

=- Add appropriate target to "target 1" and router address (192.168.1.1) to target 2;

=- MITM -> ARP -> Check "sniff remote connections";

=- Start Sniffing (if you don't do this, the target cannot connect to the interwebs);

Certificate authentications will pop up on the target's browser, most people just click accept. If you don't want this to happen you'll have to get physical or complete remote access to the targets computer and upload your certificates. In my opinion, not worth it.

Any SSL passwords will be shown in the ettercap GUI interface without any decryption needed.

If you like, open up Wireshark to get any another yummy packets.

So in this case, Wireshark isn't even necessary to get your passwords.

Don't use windows XP?

if you really have to, use Cain. I believe there is a link above me.

Cain is easypeasy to use.

Good luck, young padawan.
