I have configured a reverse proxy for Kibana using NginX and a simple NodeJs script that restricts Kibana access with user/pass. It works as expected. Kibana is proxied through NodeJS script. But I would also like to sniff this flowing data. But for some reason I cannot read the HTML that is generated when I proxy Kibana. If I proxy a simple website I can see the code. I use the same code for both.
This is what I see when I proxy a simple web page:
But when I proxy the Kibana I see a very weird encoding:
What I expect to see is some HTML code that's being sent to the client/browser, Is this an encoding issue? What kind of encoding does Kibana use? Or is it because the data is encrypted? Is it possible to read this?
