Network UPS Tools Service STARTTLS Command Support

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote service supports encrypting traffic.

Description :

The remote Network UPS Tools service supports the use of the
'STARTTLS' command to switch from a plaintext to an encrypted
communications channel.

Since Network UPS Tools provides no configuration setting for the
server to require authentication to occur after the 'STARTTLS'
command, it is recommended that 'CERTVERIFY' and 'FORCESSL' in client
configuration files.
