Level Goal

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…

Now we have to connect to a port using SSL encryption. This requires openssl and utilising the s_client. Let’s give it a go.

Wut.

It’s okay. We got a note about that. Let’s try again by adding -ign_eof. Let’s also add -quiet just to remove some of the extra bullshit we don’t care about.

Bingo.
