THE BEST WAY TO ONLINE DIGITAL SAFETY
SSL Labs is a free tool that can test the server setup on any public domain. TRUSTZONEs SSL Labs is powered by Qualys, and it is based on the idea that the better you understand the inner workings of SSL, the better you will be at developing digital certificates and online security.
TEST YOUR OWN AND OTHER’S DOMAINS
At TRUSTZONE, we want to give you the opportunity to test your own and other’s domains, to see how secure they actually are. You can do this by using SSL Labs, a website with discussion boards, blog posts and tools aimed at spreading and generating knowledge about SSL certificates and online security. TRUSTZONE SSL Labs powered by Qualys is non-commercial and research-based, and it is constantly improving thanks to the participation and input from organisations and individuals, who work with SSL on a daily basis.
If you are not sure, whether the server setup of a given domain is sufficiently secure, you can enter the domain name in SSL Labs and get a thorough server analysis within minutes. The procedure is completely free of charge and Qualys do not store the data generated by the analysis, or the entered domain names, which means that you can test both your own and other’s domains, without having to worry about the data being used for other purposes.
TRUST AND TRANSPARENCY
You do not have to be a TRUSTZONE customer in order to use our SSL Labs, but if you are, we strongly recommend that you test your domain. We want you to know whether you have any ‘holes’ in your digital security, e.g. concerning your server or configuration setup, so that we can help you fix them.
Trust is one of TRUSTZONEs core values and we believe that trust is best build on a high level of transparency. It is not in the interest of our customers to have ‘holes’ in their digital security and not know about it, and therefore it is not in our interest either. Part of our mission is to give our customers fast and simple security solutions, helping them save both time and money. If this mission is to succeed, we have to know if your systems all work as they should, and SSL Labs can help us find out.
HOW IT WORKS
Considering how widespread the use of SSL is, it is quite surprising how little attention is being paid to the configuration of SSL itself. SSL is relatively easy to use, but it does have certain pitfalls. TRUSTZONEs SSL Labs uses a simple method to assess the quality of the server setup on a given domain. This means that an administrator can get a clear sense of the SSL server configuration without being an SSL expert. But how does SSL Labs actually work?
WHEN YOU ENTER A DOMAIN NAME IN TRUSTZONEs SSL LABS, A FOUR-STEP ANALYSIS BEGINS
- First, we analyse the certificate in question to verify that it is valid and trusted
- Then we inspect the server configuration in three categories: protocol support, key exchange support and cipher support
- The category scores are combined into an overall score, expressed as a number between 0-100. A zero in any category will result in a total score of zero
- We then apply a series of rules to handle some aspects of server configuration that cannot be expressed via numerical scoring. Most rules will reduce the grade (to A-, B, C, D, E, or F) if they encounter an unwanted feature and some rules will increase the grade. A+ is the highest grade rewarded to exceptional configurations
At TRUSTZONE, we always stride to develop and issue the best digital certificates available and SSL Labs really helps us out in that respect. SSL Labs is just one example of the many different services that we offer our customers. Visit our SSL Labs here and let the testing begin.
