SSL/TLS Deprecated Ciphers Unsupported

critical Nessus Plugin ID 132675


The remote host uses deprecated SSL/TLS ciphers which are unsupported


The remote host has open SSL/TLS ports which advertise deprecated cipher suites. The ciphers contained in these suites are no longer supported by most major ssl libraries such as OpenSSL, NSS, Mbed TLS, and wolfSSL and, as such, should not be used for secure communication.

Nessus 8.9 and later no longer supports these ciphers.


Upgrade to a cipher suite which does not contain deprecated ciphers.
