This tool traces the write/send and read/recv functions of OpenSSL,
GnuTLS and NSS. Data passed to this functions is printed as plain
text. Useful, for example, to sniff HTTP before encrypted with SSL.

USAGE message:
usage: [-h] [-p PID] [-c COMM] [-o] [-g] [-n] [-d]
Sniff SSL data
optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-p PID, --pid PID sniff this PID only.
-c COMM, --comm COMM sniff only commands matching string.
-o, --no-openssl do not show OpenSSL calls.
-g, --no-gnutls do not show GnuTLS calls.
-n, --no-nss do not show NSS calls.
-d, --debug debug mode.
./sslsniff # sniff OpenSSL and GnuTLS functions
./sslsniff -p 181 # sniff PID 181 only
./sslsniff -c curl # sniff curl command only
./sslsniff --no-openssl # don't show OpenSSL calls
./sslsniff --no-gnutls # don't show GnuTLS calls
./sslsniff --no-nss # don't show NSS calls
