Download SSLyze v0.6 – SSL Server Configuration Scanning Tool

SSLyze is a Python tool that can analyze the SSL configuration of a server by connecting to it. It is designed to be fast and comprehensive, and should help organizations and testers identify misconfigurations affecting their SSL servers.

Key features include:
  • SSL 2.0/3.0 and TLS 1.0/1.1/1.2 compatibility
  • Performance testing: session resumption and TLS tickets support
  • Security testing: weak cipher suites, insecure renegation, CRIME and THC-SSL DOS attacks
  • Server certificate validation
  • Support for StartTLS with SMTP and XMPP, and traffic tunneling through an HTTPS proxy
  • Client certificate support for servers performing mutual authentication
  • Scan results can be written to an XML file for further processing
While v0.5 saw the addition of a server side check for the CRIME attack, that uses SSL Compression, v0.6 also has significant improvements. New in v0.6:
  • Added support for Server Name Indication; see –sni
  • Partial results are returned when the server requires client authentication but no client certificate was provided
  • Preliminary IPv6 support
  • Various bug fixes and better support of client authentication and HTTPS tunneling
