Pinned topic SSL connection check

‏2013-01-16T11:33:57Z |
Hi,

Am trying to make a SSL connection and i have properly configured the objects. But i want to see whether my request is getting properly encrypted or not while it is going through the SSL connection.

So can anyone please suggest me a location in DP or anywhere else to check whether the message is properly getting encrypted or not.

Thanks for help in advance.

Cheers,
Dilip.

    Unless you are getting an SSL handshake failure the connections contents are being encrypted. If you are not using the NULL ciphers then the data is encrypted.
    If all else fails and you want to see for yourself the only option I have is a packet trace (if you company rules/security issues allow it).

    You can then decode the content using Wiresharks SSL filter and see the full handshake and look at the "application data" packets to see if you can make out any data. This is just my take im sure there are other smart folks around that may have other ideas.
