if you try to build sslsniff with OpenSSL 1.1 it will fail:

In file included from SSLBridge.hpp:41:0,
                 from HTTPSBridge.hpp:24,
                 from FirefoxUpdater.hpp:23,
                 from FirefoxAddonUpdater.hpp:26,
                 from SSLConnectionManager.cpp:20:
certificate/Certificate.hpp: In member function 'void Certificate::parseCommonName(X509*)':
certificate/Certificate.hpp:95:39: error: invalid use of incomplete type 'X509 {aka struct x509_st}'
     std::string distinguishedName(cert->name);

Basically OpenSSL made many structures opaque and you have to use various API calls to access the underlying data.

On you can see some of the changes. There are also updated man pages at that should contain useful information.

This was initially filed in Debian here:
