SSL Medium Strength Cipher Suites Supported
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 42873
SynopsisThe remote service supports the use of medium strength SSL ciphers.
DescriptionThe remote host supports the use of SSL ciphers that offer medium strength encryption. Nessus regards medium strength as any encryption that uses key lengths at least 64 bits and less than 112 bits, or else that uses the 3DES encryption suite.
Note that it is considerably easier to circumvent medium strength encryption if the attacker is on the same physical network.
SolutionReconfigure the affected application if possible to avoid use of medium strength ciphers.
