SSLyze v1.0.0 Released
I just released a new version of SSLyze, my Python tool/library which can analyze the SSL configuration of a server by connecting to it and detect various issues (bad certificates, dangerous cipher suites, lack of session resumption, etc.).
After almost 20 releases over the past 6 years, SSLyze is now at version 1.0.0. This is a major release as I have completed a significant refactoring of SSLyze’s internals,in order to clean its Python API. The API should be considered stable and is now fully documented!
Using SSLyze as a Python module makes it easy to implement SSL/TLS scanning as part of continuous security testing platform, and detect any misconfiguration across a range of public and/or internal endpoints.
This sample code scans the
www.google.com:443 endpoint to detect the list of SSL 3.0 cipher suites it accepts, whether it supports secure renegotiation, and will also review the server’s certificate:
The Python API can do a lot more than this (such as scanning StartTLS endpoints, connecting through a proxy, or enabling client authentication); head to the project’s page or the documentation for more information.
