HoneyProxy is a lightweight man-in-the-middle proxy that helps you analyze HTTP(S) traffic flows. It is tailored to the needs of security researchers and allows both real-time and log analysis. Being compatible with mitmproxy, it focuses on features that are useful in a forensic context and allows extended visualization capabilites.

HoneyProxy is developed as a HTML5 HTML5 browser-based application working on top of a logging core written in Python. It is primarily developed by Maximilian Hils and mentored by Guillaume Arcas as part of the Honeynet Google Summer of Code 2012 project.

More details can be found on the Honeynet project page.

Current Status

HoneyProxy is currently in an early beta phase. While there are still many features missing, HoneyProxy is already a nice open source alternative to other proxies such as BURP. Below you can see a screenshot of the current status - a real-time log sorted by request time.
