SSL Info

Utility library for determining which SSL/TLS versions and ciphers a server supports

Installation

This module requires NodeJS v6.9 or higher

npm install sslinfo --save

Note: This library requires an OpenSSL installation - the newer the better.

Usage

Get the server certificate, enabled SSL/TLS protocols, and supported ciphers.

var sslinfo = require('sslinfo');

sslinfo.getServerResults({ host: "www.google.com", port: 443 })
    .done(function (results) {
        console.log(results);
    },
    function (error) {
        console.log("Error", {error: error})
    });

Note: To get results from servers which support SNI (all servers of cloudflare for example), specify which servername should be transmitted to the remote server:

sslinfo.getServerResults({ host: "www.cloudflare.com", port: 443, servername: "www.cloudflare.com" })

The getServerResults() function returns a promise that should be resolved by implementing done().

Sample output:

{
    "host": "www.google.com",
    "port": 443,
    "cert": {
        ... certificate information ...
    },
    "protocols": [
        {
            "protocol": "SSLv2_method",
            "name": "SSLv2",
            "enabled": false,
            "error": "The installed openssl library does not support \"SSLv2_method\""
        },
        {
            "protocol": "SSLv3_method",
            "name": "SSLv3",
            "enabled": true
        },
        {
            "protocol": "TLSv1_method",
            "name": "TLSv1",
            "enabled": true
        },
        {
            "protocol": "TLSv1_1_method",
            "name": "TLSv1.1",
            "enabled": true
        },
        {
            "protocol": "TLSv1_2_method",
            "name": "TLSv1.2",
            "enabled": true
        }
    ],
    "ciphers": {
        "SSLv3_method": {
            ...
        },
        "TLSv1_method": {
            "name": "TLSv1",
            "enabled": [
                ... enabled cipher list ...
            ],
            "disabled": [
                ... disabled cipher list ...
            ],
            "unsupported": [
                ... ciphers unsupported by the OpenSSL version ...
            ]
        },
        "TLSv1_1_method": {
            ...
        },
        "TLSv1_2_method": {
            ...
        }
    }
}

Beginning with NodeJS 4.0.0, SSLv2 and SSLv3 are disabled by default. The sample output will be slightly different in this case.

{
    "host": "www.google.com",
    "port": 443,
    "cert": {
        ... certificate information ...
    },
    "certPEM": '... PEM encoded certificate ...',
    "protocols": [
        {
            "protocol": "SSLv2_method",
            "name": "SSLv2",
            "enabled": false,
            "error": "This version of NodeJS does not support \"SSLv2_method\""
        }
    ]
}

Get only the certificate information for a server

var sslinfo = require('sslinfo');

sslinfo.getCertificateInfo({ host: "www.google.com", port: 443 })
    .done(function (results) {
        console.log(results);
    },
    function (error) {
        console.log("Error", {error: error})
    });

The getCertificateInfo() function returns a promise that should be resolved by implementing done().

Sample output:

{
    "host": "www.google.com",
    "port": 443,
    "cert": {
        { version: 2,
             subject:
              { countryName: 'US',
                stateOrProvinceName: 'California',
                localityName: 'Mountain View',
                organizationName: 'Google Inc',
                commonName: 'www.google.com' },
             issuer:
              { countryName: 'US',
                organizationName: 'Google Inc',
                commonName: 'Google Internet Authority G2' },
             ... more cert info ...
    },
    "certPEM": '... PEM encoded certificate ...'
}

Get information about the installed OpenSSL version

var sslinfo = require('sslinfo');

sslinfo.getOpenSSLCapabilities()
    .done(function (results) {
        console.log(results);
    },
    function (error) {
        console.log("Error", {error: error});
    });

The getOpenSSLCapabilities() function returns a promise that should be resolved by implementing done().

Sample output (from Mac OS X 10.10.3):

{
    "version": "OpenSSL 0.9.8zd 8 Jan 2015",
    "protocols": {
        "supported": [
            "SSLv3",
            "TLSv1",
            "TLSv1.1",
            "TLSv1.2"
        ],
        "unsupported": [
            "SSLv2"
        ]
    },
    "ciphers": {
        "supported": [
            ... ciphers supported by this OpenSSL version ...
        ],
        "unsupported": [
            ... ciphers supported by this tool, but not the installed OpenSSL version ...
        ]
    }
}

Note: The unsupported cipher list is not necessarily correct. I'm going to investigate how to make this information more useful.
