View Full Version : OpenVPN, Private Key and Decryption

Hello g4h Team,

Not sure if this is the right category to post this question, but I can't find a crypto / decryption category, hence posting it under network security.

Assuming there is an OpenVPN connection (setup using easy RSA) between Alice and Bob, and if I have the private key of either Alice or bob and the encrypted OpenVPN traffic (wireshark / tcpdump capture), can I decrypt the message:
>> If yes, any reference for understanding the process in detail?
>> If no, what else is required so that the encrypted VPN traffic can be decrypted?
