Hello Shawn E. Although this might answer the question, can you provide some additional explanations? Maybe that would be helpful for others. – nixda Jan 21 '13 at 20:20

Shawn E's answer is probably the correct answer but my wireshark version doesnt have that filter. Following filters do exists, however:

To check if the SNI field exists:

ssl.handshake.extension.type == 0


ssl.handshake.extension.type == "server_name"

To check if an extension contains certain domain: contains ""
