Ever wonder what information your smartphone is giving away?

mitmproxy ( is an open source man-in-the-middle HTTPS proxy. It can be used as an interactive proxy to intercept and modify requests or as a passive proxy to act like tcpdump, but for HTTP. It is highly extensible using a simple Python scripting interface. Max, one of the mitmproxy authors, will give a brief introduction to mitmproxy and show how you can use it to debug applications, see what data your smartphone is giving away, tamper with APIs, and more.

There will be a hands-on demo, so feel free to bring your laptop if you want to participate!
