Release and tagging

  • Current version of ssldump is v1.8 (released: 2023-08-14) - ChangeLog

What about the original ssldump?

This repository is composed of the original SSLDUMP 0.9b3 + a myriad of patches (from Debian and other distributions) + contributions via PR

ssldump is an SSLv3/TLS network protocol analyzer. It identifies TCP connections on the chosen network interface and attempts to interpret them as SSLv3/TLS traffic. When it identifies SSLv3/TLS traffic, it decodes the records and displays them in a textual form to stdout. If provided with the appropriate keying material, it will also decrypt the connections and display the application data traffic. It also includes a JSON output option, supports JA3 and IPv6.

How to do I run ssldump?

./ssldump -j -ANH -n -i any | jq will run ssldump on all interfaces and output the result in JSON format including ja3 hashes.

For more details, check the man page.

How can I lookup ja3 hashes?

This example will query service to display the known ja3 hashes from the TLS handshaked in the pcap.

./ssldump -r yourcapture.pcap -j | jq -r 'select(.ja3_fp != null) | .ja3_fp' | parallel 'curl -s -X GET '{}' | jq .'

Why do you maintain this repository?

Because it's a mess. The software maintenance process for old free (unmaintained) software like ssldump is a complete chaotic process. I do this to ease my pain and this could help other too (but this is just a collateral damage).

The "save to pcap" (-w) option by @ryabkov, is heavily based on the work of @droe on .


The contributing policy is simple. If you have a patch to propose, make a pull-request via the interface. If the patch works for me, it's merged.
