Network UPS Tools Service STARTTLS Command Support

info Nessus Plugin ID 59658
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote service supports encrypting traffic.


The remote Network UPS Tools service supports the use of the 'STARTTLS' command to switch from a cleartext 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.
