SSL Session Resume Supported

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host allows resuming SSL sessions.

Description :

This script detects whether a host allows resuming SSL sessions by
performing a full SSL handshake to receive a session ID, and then
reconnecting with the previously used session ID. If the server
accepts the session ID in the second connection, the server maintains
a cache of sessions that can be resumed.
