This is a fork of ioerror's version of sslscan (the original readme of which is included below). Changes are as follows:
- Highlight SSLv2 and SSLv3 ciphers in output.
- Highlight CBC ciphers on SSLv3 (POODLE).
- Highlight 3DES and RC4 ciphers in output.
- Highlight PFS+GCM ciphers as good in output.
- Highlight NULL (0 bit), weak (<40 bit) and medium (40 < n <= 56) ciphers in output.
- Highlight anonymous (ADH and AECDH) ciphers in output (purple).
- Hide certificate information by default (display with
- Hide rejected ciphers by default (display with
- Added TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 support (merged from twwbond/sslscan).
- Compiles if OpenSSL does not support SSLv2 ciphers (merged from digineo/sslscan).
- Supports IPv6 hostnames (can be forced with

Building on Windows
Thanks to a patch by jtesta, sslscan can now be compiled on Windows. This can either be done natively or by cross-compiling from Linux. See INSTALL for instructions.
Note that sslscan was originally written for Linux, and has not been extensively tested on Windows. As such, the Windows version should be considered experimental.
Pre-build cross-compiled Windows binaries are available on the GitHub Releases Page .
Building on OS X
There is experimental support for statically building on OS X, however this should be considered unsupported. You may need to install any dependencies required to compile OpenSSL from source on OS X. Once you have, just run:
Statically linking a custom OpenSSL build
It is possible to ignore the OpenSSL system installation and ship your own version. Although this results in a more resource-heavy
sslscanbinary (file size, memory consumption, etc.), this allows to enable both SSLv2 and SSLv3 ciphers. In comparison to the method of repackaging the Debian build, this custom OpenSSL build won't affect other tools on the same system, as they would use the version packaged by the distro's maintainers.
To compile your own OpenSSL version, you'll probably need to install the OpenSSL build dependencies:
apt-get install build-essential git zlib1g-dev apt-get build-dep openssl
which will clone the OpenSSL repository , and configure/compile/test OpenSSL prior to compiling
Please note: Out of the box, OpenSSL cannot compiled with
clangwithout further customization (which is not done by the provided
Makefile). For more information on this, see Modifying Build Settings in the OpenSSL wiki.
You can verify whether you have a statically linked OpenSSL version, if
looks a bit like

Building on Kali
Kali now ships with a statically built version of sslscan which supports SSLv2.
The package can be found in the Kali Git Repository .
If for whatever reason you can't install this package, follow the instructions above for statically building against OpenSSL.
Building on Debian
It is recommended that you statically build sslscan using the instructions listed above. If this is not an option and you want to compile your system OpenSSL with support for legacy protocols such as SSLv2 and SSLv3 then follow the instructions below.
Note that many modern distros (including Debian) ship with a version of OpenSSL that disables support for SSLv2 ciphers. If
sslscanis compiled on one of these distros, it will not be able to detect SSLv2.
This issue can be resolved by rebuilding OpenSSL from source after removing the patch that disables SSLv2 support.
build_openssl_debian.shscript automates this process for Debian systems. It has been tested on Debian Squeeze/Wheezy; it may work on other Debian based distros, but has not been tested. The built version of OpenSSL will be installed using
If it is not possible to rebuild OpenSSL,
sslscanwill still compile (thanks to a patch from digineo/sslscan , based on the debian patch). However, a warning will be displayed in the output to notify the user that SSLv2 ciphers will not be detected.
