We have computer and an application written in Java. The application must work with SSL only.

Is there any way to fetch a list of current SSL connections?

If you know the port on which the Java App listens, you should be able to view connections with the netstat command. If your machine is behind a firewall, you (or your network admin) should be able to monitor traffic to the machine - which might be easier and cleaner than using a sniffer.

No. Windows only tracks TCP connections and does not know anything about SSL/TLS, which works at a higher level than TCP.

What you can do is use Wireshark to monitor all network traffic, or ProcMon to see which TCP/UDP ports your program is connecting to. (Port monitoring is not very fool-proof, though.)

How about netstat? – Ha Ne Oct 25 '11 at 4:10
If you can find the word "SSL" in netstat's output, sure. Like I said the OS only tracks low level TCP connections. – grawity Oct 25 '11 at 5:08
