    So I'm messing around with sniffing traffic from the 3DS, and it seems like certain apps don't want to follow the proxy set in system settings. Is there any way to globally force a proxy?

    I don't think there is on any system really.

    If all you need to do is sniff data then why not route the traffic through your PC (using it as a gateway, or possibly having some fun with ARP poisoning)? Indeed if it is just sniffing you might even be able to drop security to a lower level before we all started getting nice per device wireless crypto.

    It unfortunately involves SSL sniffing, and I can't get it to route any traffic through my proxy SSL or not :/

    That does make life a bit harder. Assuming they learned their lesson from the DS and Wii and only talk via SSL (seriously, the DS and Wii stuff amounted to replace https with http and it was all happy to talk in plain, and given the stuff that led to the pokemon scanners I am not so sure they did) I would almost be tempted to mod the game to fire off packets containing the session key(s) directly to a known local address (should not be too much ASM fiddling) or find out where it is in RAM and play with savestates and decrypt post session.
