Getting started on mitmproxy
mitmproxy is a free and open source interactive HTTPS proxy
The mitmproxy project’s tools are a set of front-ends that expose common underlying functionality. *
mitmproxy is an interactive, SSL-capable intercepting proxy with a console interface. *
mitmdump is the command-line version of mitmproxy. Think tcpdump for HTTP. *
mitmweb is a web-based interface for mitmproxy. *
pathod are perverse HTTP client and server applications designed to let you craft almost any conceivable HTTP request, including ones that creatively violate the standards.
- Install python3
- (Windows) Start Windows PowerShell with the “Run as Administrator” option. Only members of the Administrators group on the computer can change the execution policy.
- (Windows) Enable running unsigned scripts by entering:
4. Install mitmproxy from source
The dev script will create a virtualenv environment in a directory called “venv” and install all mandatory and optional dependencies into it. The primary mitmproxy components — mitmproxy and pathod — are installed as “editable”, so any changes to the source in the repository will be reflected live in the virtualenv.
The main executables for the project — mitmdump, mitmproxy, mitmweb, pathod, and pathoc — are all created within the virtualenv. After activating the virtualenv, they will be on your $PATH, and you can run them like any other command:
5. Running mitmweb
mitmweb --set block_global=false
6. Set a lot of parameters if needed
mitmweb --set block_global=false --set ignore-hosts='^(?!example\.com)(?!mitmproxy\.org)' --set showhost=true --ssl-insecure
7. The certificate files locate at ~/.mitmproxy/. Apple/Android/Other could use .pem, Windows could use .p12
8. Set the proxy in WIFI configuration on the mobile with the IP of mitmproxy and port 8080.
