32 or 64 bit browser tests for https request help please
« on: August 23, 2015, 02:33:06 AM »
Hi

I am in the process of looking at submitting updates for openssl  with updated certificates

I have the following tests, but need to mention that if you use a web browser that has its OWN certificates, you will likely be mislead.
---that means you can't use FF or Opera.

###########
1) Test that your certificates are in order

download elinks

so far this test appears to be good as elinks does not appear to have its own certificates and therefore I hope are using openssl*'s certificates.

Code: [Select]
elinks https://cert-test.sandbox.google.com/
elinks https://gmail.com

^^^ I use CTRL + c to break the first web page to input second command.
YMMV

expected result is OK first URL, web page for logging into gmail for second URL

2) Next I found thru google a openssl test for http as follows

Code: [Select]
openssl s_client -connect www.paypal.com:443

########################
Question
I am looking for a https type test for openssl but my attempt to replace that paypal URL with a https is currently a fail.

thanks for reading and I am happy to test anything you think might work.

feel free to be critical of my thinking. I am not a security expert so may be misleading myself on my own brain cell capacity

 :)

Ok looking at this link
http://www.penguintutor.com/linux/network-services-ports

port 443 is https      443/tcp            # http protocol over TLS/SSL
or udp

me thinks no more testing needed?

What is your issue with openssl, why do you want to update it?

Hi bmarkus

a few reasons

1) It appears that the most up-to-date upsteam is 1.0.2d
2) It is generally a good idea to use the most recent and
3) there appears to be some vulnerabilities as per link
http://openssl.org/news/vulnerabilities.html#y2015

eg 11th June 2015 fixed in 1.0.1i  and searching 1.0.1i  brings up multiple hits in that link.

cheers

actually I was wrong again.

The above cert tests are fine but I found one new test. This test sees if your brower will accept REVOKED certificates. If so you will see the below image.

a PASS is either a message that Secure Connection has failed (firefox) more info that
Peer's Certificate has been revoked  or for opera-12
"The certificate has been revoked by its issuer"

Below is what a FAIL looks like, with page culled to show just the top info.



Here is the link for anyone interested?

good luck
