SSL/TLS decryption in Wireshark


Wireshark’s dissector for SSL is able to decrypt SSL/TLS, given the private key in PFX/P12 or PEM format. If you want to figure out whether you’re using the right private key, you can derive the public key from it, and compare its modulus with the first certificate in the chain of certificates sent in the SERVER HELLO.

$ openssl rsa -text -in key.pem -pubout
Private-Key: (2048 bit)
modulus:
