SSL vulnerabilities on CentOS System

0 votes

Following 2 vulnerabilities were detected in VA scan required for PCI compliance:

  1. SSL Weak Cipher Suites Supported
  2. SSL Medium Strength Cipher Suites Supported

I'm using CentOS 5.8 with open ssl version "openssl-0.9.8e-22.el5_8.4". Any idea how to get rid of this?

Are you using SSL /https?
If so, edit the SSL settings to remove the offending ciphers. Where else are you using SSL - check configs for ciphers supported.

You have far more security issues with your system than just providing weak SSL ciphers, because you are not up to date. The current CentOS 5 minor release is 9 with a fair amount of additional bug and security
updates. Update ASAP (`yum update').

Has anyone gotten this working? I have it compiling no problem, but removing OpenSSL is another story of course. It seems to be compiled with FIPS support and of course there is no such thing in LibreSSL - that is something they tore out

We need to migrate to new address. Some time we need to listen on 2 domains. Is there any way to have two certs for the same service depending on the address?

Currently my SSL config is this:

unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"
prefix="localhost_access_log" suffix=".txt"
pattern="%h %l %u %t "%r" %s %b"

Thank you for any help

The problem is. I'm using ssl certificates and configured ssl on apache. when I connect the site with https it works but when I click on an link it no more secure i.e. its not secure browsing anymore.

My requirement is as follows.

If user connects as https all the links should work as https. If the user connects as http all the links should work as http is such thing is possible?

Has any one used resizefs module with cloud-init on centos/redhat before? How to call it with #cloud-config user data, do I need to give it any parameters? I googled cloud-init, but it is pretty difficult to find a manual/book on this, and mostly they are Ubuntu based.

If possible, I'd like to use a same image/AMI to boot up instances(VMs) with different disk size setup, and let cloud-init to take care of increasing partition size, and file system re-sizing. Is it possible for centos/redhat?
