I'm using 2 RaspberryPi's to communicate with each other over IP using netcat (Unencrypted and direct over IP messaging through port 555) using R.Pi#1: sudo nc -l 555 R.Pi#2: sudo nc 555. I checked, it works and it does not encrypt the packet's payload, I can see the entire conversation on WireShark.

Then, im sniffing that conversation with a 3rd R.Pi running Kali-Linux using wireshark,but now I see the conversation under LLC protocl instead of TCP like I saw before, and I belive the data payload is now encrypted.I tried decrypt it through HEX to string converter or Binary to string converter, still its gibrish, How can i make it human-readable?

Here are some pictures:

Sigh. As ever, a capture file is much more useful than some screenshots.

Can you share a capture in a publicly accessible spot, e.g. CloudShark, Google Drive, DropBox etc.?

Also can you explain your capture environment and where the captures were made, i.e. show the 3 RPI's, and the connections between them?

yes, this is the Drive link :each for Rx and Tx messages

Im capturing over my WLAN, all the R.Pi's are connected to the same WPA wifi.

Thanks for the quick reply.

p.s: its only showing the LLC packets because the others are unrelated ARP or other managment protocol packets so i've unselected them.
