SSL Strip

There’s a nice tool that will perform SSL man in the middle attacks.  In layman’s terms this means when this tool is run on a gateway it will create a clear text HTTP stream on the network (that you can sniff) when someone creates a HTTPS session.  i.e. Someone logs into Gmail via HTTPS and there will be an HTTP clear text mirror of that session which you can sniff via Wireshark.
