I have created a capture with decrypted TLS data by injecting the keys into the capture file. I have not found a way to search the decrypted data using the display filter. I can search encrypted data using tls.app_data. It seems like it should be a simple thing to search decrypted data, but I have not found it. I have tried using tls.segment, tls.segments, and others. Thanks

Using the snakeoil2 sample cature, the TLS is decrypted as HTTP.

1. A display filter of http contains "Linux" returns 12 frames.
2. Or you can select a decrypted packet, right click and use Follow->TLS Stream or Follow->HTTP Stream.
3. Or disable the decode for HTTP and filter on contains "Linux"

Thanks. I tried 'http contains' but wasn't finding what I was looking for. After sleeping on it and looking again, it appears you are correct and I don't know what I was doing yesterday. I did not realize '' did not work because http was enabled, that bit of info helps.

The data "dissector" is only called if no other dissector can be found to handle the data.
