In order to capture encrypted traffic, you'll have to install root certificate provided by Betwixt.
The certificate is generated for you when you first launch Betwixt. You can quickly locate it on disk using
Tools > Root Certificate menu.
ca.pem has to be imported and marked as trusted.
On OS X this is done via Keychain app as shown below.
After certificate is installed, expand the
Trust section and toggle the first dropdown to
On Windows use certmgr.
Direct the traffic to the proxy created by Betwixt in the background (
If you wish to analyze traffic system wide:
- on OS X -
System Preferences → Network → Advanced → Proxies → Secure Web Proxy (HTTPS)
- on Ubuntu -
All Settings → Network → Network Proxy
- on Windows -
Settings → Network & Internet → Proxy
If you want to capture traffic coming from a single terminal use
export https_proxy=http://localhost:8008. Note that NodeJS has a hardcoded list of CA certificates so it doesn't care for Keychain/certmgr/etc. You may need to use
export NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED=0 to overcome this issue.
