Is there any tool that would allow me to audit or check if everything is all right concerning my SSL Handshake ?

I personally found it is a bit slow, but I really don't know if it's just me.

I am currently hosted on a VPS running OpenVZ, this is what entropy_avail looks like:

root@mtl:~# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail

Do you have any idea of something else I should look into ?

How slow - and are you sure it's not other aspects of the HTTP connection? Can you capture a request/response with something like Wireshark to see where the delay occurs? – Shane Madden Mar 15 '12 at 0:54

Run this.

I scored 85 out of 100. Should I consider my installation as correct ? – Pierre-Olivier Mar 14 '12 at 23:49
certainly nothing major wrong – matthewk Mar 14 '12 at 23:56
