I was reading about Nokia HTTPS MitM. Many corporate firewall can MitM HTTPS
for content inspection and many governments do this for their reasons.

I was thinking: could it be possible to create a fake HTTPS stream to DoS the
MitM attempt?

You could probably just capture the first packet of the SSL stream that your browser
sends for a valid request and then replay it... that's probably the easiest way.
