Cryptographic Strength of The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) Servers

The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and its variant, Transport Layer Security (TLS), are used toward ensuring server security. In this paper, we characterize the cryptographic strength of public servers running SSL/TLS. We present a tool developed for this purpose, the Probing SSL Security Tool (PSST), and evaluate over 19,000 servers. We expose the great diversity […]
