SSLScan – check ssl servers

SSLScan queries SSL services, such as HTTPS, in order to determine the ciphers that are supported. SSLScan is designed to be easy, lean and fast. The output includes prefered ciphers of the SSL service, the certificate and is in Text and XML formats.


sudo apt-get install sslscan

Syntax and Example:

sslscan --no-failed

If I want to know whether the server still supports SSLv2, I can check the target like this:

sslscan --no-failed --ssl2

Check mail Servers:

sslscan --no-failed --starttls
