SSL/TLS EXPORT_DHE <= 512-bit Export Cipher Suites Supported (Logjam)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 83738


The remote host supports a set of weak ciphers.


The remote host supports EXPORT_DHE cipher suites with keys less than or equal to 512 bits. Through cryptanalysis, a third party can find the shared secret in a short amount of time.

A man-in-the middle attacker may be able to downgrade the session to use EXPORT_DHE cipher suites. Thus, it is recommended to remove support for weak cipher suites.


Reconfigure the service to remove support for EXPORT_DHE cipher suites.
