OpenSSL Detection

info Nessus Plugin ID 50845


The remote service appears to use OpenSSL to encrypt traffic.


Based on its response to a TLS request with a specially crafted server name extension, it seems that the remote service is using the OpenSSL library to encrypt traffic.

Note that this plugin can only detect OpenSSL implementations that have enabled support for TLS extensions (RFC 4366).
