This is a subject that’s grabbed my attention recently here at Grinnell College. Specifically, I wanted a way to run my own SSL vulnerability scans of servers inside the campus firewall, something that outside agents could not do effectively. About a month ago I came upon a tool for this task, testssl.sh, and I’ve installed it on my Docker staging server, DGDockerX.
The tool resides in the islandora user’s home directory on DGDockerX and I’m able to run it from a terminal open to that node like so:
cd ~/testssl.sh ./testssl.sh --help
As you might imagine, running the application with a
--help flag produces a listing of all available commands.
Typically I’ll do something like:
And that’s a wrap. Until next time…
