Hi, I'm sorry , my English is not good defense . I have a problem in decoding htpps pages. I have tested the following page . I have the address , port 443 and http protocol , key file in text format . ( Key File is on the test page)
The log file is plain text , which is not any but . The plaintext is still encrypted. What am I doing wrong ? Can Wiresahrk ever decrypt https traffic?

My system : Win 8.1, Wireshark 1.12.3 , Firefox 35.0.1

... With a man in the middle proxy test page can be decrypted.

umm the cipher being used is tls_dhe_rsa which according to my research wireshark doesnt support(?) in your https data..U can check in server hello for the cipher suite..It must be tls_rsa_some_algo.I think thats the problem.

Thank you for your quick response. The Diffie-Hellman algorithm can not Wireshark I know. But I have my browser (Firefox) in the about: config set all ... ssl3.dhe_rsa_ .... to false.

Still do not understand why this does not work.

so in wireshark capture what is the cipher suite that is being displayed in the server hello?? if it is tls_rsa only then it can be done...because when i tried doing the same thing from my pc wireshark capture server hello had dhe_rsa as the cipher suite!!
