Bandit Level 15
The password for the next level can be retrieved by submitting the password of the current level to port 30001 on localhost using SSL encryption.
Helpful note: Getting “HEARTBEATING” and “Read R BLOCK”? Use -ign_eof and read the “CONNECTED COMMANDS” section in the manpage. Next to ‘R’ and ‘Q’, the ‘B’ command also works in this version of that command…
Commands you may need to solve this level
ssh, telnet, nc, openssl, s_client, nmap

So this level is pretty much the same as the last. But this time we need to connect through SSL(Secure Sockets Layer) which basically means encrypted communication. We need to use the
openssl s_client -ign_eof -connect localhost:30001
s_client implements a generic SSL/TLS client which can establish a transparent connection to a remote server speaking SSL/TLS. For more information use
s_server on the other hand implements a generic SSL/TLS server which accepts connections from remote clients speaking SSL/TLS(analogous to the
nc -l <port_number> command).
ign_eof is to be used as mentioned in the description other wise we get this
ign_eof does is it prevents the server from closing down the connection when the end of file is reached in our input(when we press the
enter key after submitting the password).
connect host:port specifies the host and optional port to connect to. If not specified then an attempt is made to connect to the local host on port 4433.
-connect host:port flags are under
man s_client and not
Using the correct command and password we get the next password.
