Nmap Script to Test SSL Versions and Cipher Suites

Included in NMap is a script called ssl-enum-ciphers, which will let you scan a target and list all SSL protocols and ciphers that are available on that server. You can also narrow it down by specifying a port number with the -p option.

This tool comes in handy if you’re doing a vulnerability scan and you need to make some changes to a server and you want to test those changes. This will allow you to perform a quick scan without needing to do a complete vulnerability scan.

$ nmap --script ssl-enum-ciphers -p 443 testdomain.com
