I am working on packet capturing, for this i used jpcap using this i am able to get the packet data and able to convert this stream in to string format.i am getting this data for all web site which can open in my browser.
but i have a problem with mail contents i.e. if i access the gmail of my account then there i read the mails, delete ,send mails etc.
while in the process if i check my program i am not able to get any data from the packets that i capture .
why i am not able to extract the data for these mails but i am able to extract the data for all sites as i said.
how can i get the packet data for mails . please assist me.
Thanking you in advance.
is it possible the gmail data is encrypted over an SSL transport ? in that case you would not directly be able to get the data from the jpcap.
gmail is most definetely implementing SSL, I tried once hitching a ride on their SMTP and could not because of SSL
