SSL Server test

HI All,
I am using Windows server 2012 R2 standard and hosted for the Gateway server. I ran IIS crypto as well , but still overall rating as " B " only.

This server supports weak Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange parameters. Grade capped to B

TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 (0x9f)   DH 1024 bits   FS   WEAK
256
TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 (0x9e)   DH 1024 bits   FS   WEAK
128


Can any one help on this.

Hi

I would disable tls-dhe ciphers and in schannel unselect tls1 and 1.1, sha and diffie helman.
That should bring a A rating.

Cheers

10 Tips to Protect Your Business from Ransomware

Did you know that ransomware is the most widespread, destructive malware in the world today? It accounts for 39% of all security breaches, with ransomware gangsters projected to make $11.5B in profits from online extortion by 2019.

Hi , I have tried the same steps unselect all tls-dhe ciphers in Cipher suites and in schannel unselect tls1 and 1.1, sha and diffie helman.

Still no luck , I am getting B grade only.

After the changes, did you reboot the server?

Do check out this site ("Guide to Deploying Diffie-Hellman for TLS") for admin as it is pertaining to past weak cipher for DH discovered. https://weakdh.org/sysadmin.html

Disable Diffie-Hellman under Key Exchanges Enabled
1. Use IISCrypto to apply the “Best Practices” Template 2. Disable TLS 1.0 (Assuming SQL is not on the server or these updates have been applied and RDS/RDWeb is not deployed)
3. Disable MD5 under Hashes enabled
4. Disable Diffie-Hellman under Key Exchanges Enabled
5. Apply and reboot

Hi, you have given a best solution , but not sure IIS Crypto settings are not making any changes.so still getting B grade only.

btanExec ConsultantCommented:
It may be some apps but if after rebooting the machine and the DH 1024 or TLS 1.0/1 still exist from reading from iiscrypto then A may not be achievable. Maybe useful if you can share the finding so that we understand the B is due to what reason based on the online findings it stated

TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 (0x9e)   DH 1024 bits   FS   WEAK  128

Facing issue with these two above keys.. Can you please help me out.

btanExec ConsultantCommented:
if you can't use 2048-bit (or larger) DH parameters (and generate new parameters on a regular basis), you should probably disable DHE.

the grade should be capped to B unless they support ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 and prioritize it over any CBC suites or only support suites that use ECDHE_ECDSA with an AEAD cipher.
