SSL Session Resume Supported

Info Nessus Plugin ID 51891


The remote host allows resuming SSL sessions.


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.
