jSSLKeyLog is a Java Agent Library that logs SSL session keys of connections 
created by a Java application to a log file understood by Wireshark (see, so that "Follow
SSL stream" can be used to debug SSL connection issues as if the connection
was not encrypted. It works with both Java server and client software.

System requirements

This program requires Java 1.7 or higher. Download it from
In case you want to use it with Java 1.5 or 1.6, use version 1.1 of this
program instead. 

The agent library was tested with Java 1.7 to 1.9; as it accesses internal
API directly, it might not work in more recent versions without updating.


- First download jSSLKeyLog and extract it.

- Locate the command line used to start the Java program (usually hidden in
  some script or batch file) you want to monitor, it will usually look like

  java ... -jar file.jar ...
  java ... some.class.Name ...
- Now add an additional parameter directly after the java command name, 
  which is 
  so that the complete command looks like this:
  java -javaagent:jSSLKeyLog.jar=/path/to/your_logfile.log ... -jar file.jar

- You can give an absolute or relative path to jSSLKeyLog.jar and to your

- If you use a double == between name of the Jar file and the name of
  your log file, extra verbose comments (containing timestamps and
  local/remote host/ip) will be written before the individual entries.

- The logfile will be written while the program is running. Now just point
  Wireshark to that logfile and happy SSL decoding!
- Note that for decoding ECDSA ciphers, at least Wireshark 1.11.3 (as of
  now, a development version, but probably already stable when you are
  reading this) is required.
