I have a mobile app that connects to a IoT device over port 8888 to send commands. I'm not sure how to intercept this. MITMproxy was not able to capture the data as the app would not load behind a proxy. I own the devices and a router to try capture this data. Any advice?

Did you try running your mobile app in the Android emulator from the Android SDK? I think, you should be able to capture the traffic between the app and IoT using Wireshark on the same PC.

  • The app is able to recognize that It's in a proxy. I was hoping to be able to capture the WI-FI data and decrypt that. Feb 11 at 20:57
  • I see, and just to be sure, did you try using WireShark? May be this might be helpful osqa-ask.wireshark.org/questions/48500/…

  • Thank you @Rajiv however just capturing the data is not enough as it uses SSL, I belive it's TLS1.2 hence the proxy. Feb 16 at 10:10
