Actually I have been wondering how to verify the encryption, not just trust the
selected encryption method. Unfotunally this seems not to be trivial job to do for
ordinary person. I understand this now. And the sniffing tools have weaknesses too,
you can't 100% trust them.

Thanks to Bryan and Jouni for the answers.
