mitmproxy – SSL-capable man-in-the-middle proxy

mitmproxy is an SSL-capable man-in-the-middle HTTP proxy. It provides a console interface that allows traffic flows to be inspected and edited on the fly.

mitmdump is the command-line version of mitmproxy, with the same functionality but without the frills. Think tcpdump for HTTP.


  • Intercept and modify HTTP traffic on the fly
  • Save HTTP conversations for later replay and analysis
  • Replay both HTTP clients and servers
  • Make scripted changes to HTTP traffic using Python
  • SSL interception certs generated on the fly


The easiest way to install the latest release of mitmproxy is to use pip:

pip install mitmproxy
