Thread: Getting MY private key for an HTTPS session?

    Question Getting MY private key for an HTTPS session?

    Hello there

    I wish to get the private key used by my browsed (Opera or FireFox) during an HTTPS communication.

    I know I cannot get the server's private key, but I wish to get at least my own private key and decrypt with it what my browser displays in the screen.

    Any idea on how to get it?

    As far as I know the client doesn't have a "private key" it uses, but it checks the server's public key against the list of CA's who issue certificates.

    This might be worth reading:
