In a funny bit of coincidence, I'm currently on a Delta flight with Gogo wireless as I see this story about Gogo and SSL certificates break. The allegation is that Gogo is intercepting SSL traffic, decrypting, doing who-knows-what, then re-encrypting before delivering it to you. It's a pretty common practice in most companies where they want to monitor employee behavior, but it typically requires that someone installs a special root certificate on your machine. Otherwise, most modern browsers will throw all kinds of warnings and blocks about the site being untrusted.
So, I loaded up "SSL Detective" (a free iOS app) on my iPhone and went to work. My findings are interesting, but a bit weird.
Basically, all the usual stuff (Twitter, Facebook, Google, Gmail) was just fine. But video sites (YouTube, Vimeo, Crackle) all show up signed by this one strange cert.
It's a pretty strange thing to be analyzing, as there's probably no personal data going there (at least in comparison to decrypting Facebook or gmail). My guess is that it's related to their desire to block streaming video sites.
But I thought it interesting enough to share my findings.
