Tool and Usage
ssldump is protocol analyzer for SSLv3/TLS network traffic. It identifies TCP connections on the chosen network interface and tries to interpret it.
How it works
While the tool is listening, it attempts to interpret any SSLv3/TLS traffic it sees. Any related information will be displayed (text to stdout). When the tool has been given any key details, it will decrypt the traffic and show application data inside the streams.
The ssldump project is hosted on SourceForge. While that is not bad, it gives away the age of the project.
