There is a key log file name option in preference->ssh protocol. How can I use it? What format should the key log file be?

Did you mean SSL/TLS or SSH? My SSH protocol preference does not have this field, though TLS does, as @grahamb points out.

Doh! Poor comprehension skills, I mistook SSH for SSL.

There is ongoing work on SSH decryption. The preference was added by change 37936 in July last year.

I have deleted my incorrect answer.

Thanks a lot for your informatiuon! It is a good news for me to hear that your team is doing a great jod for SSH message decryption! So, this feature is not fully available now, right? And only curve25519-sha256 algorithm is supported now? When will that feature be fully available?

There is no "plan" as such, only work contributed by volunteers as and when they have time available.

All right. Thank the volunteers for their selfless work! And I look forward to their future work for SSH decryption, very meaningful work!
