I want to disable cipher SSL3_RSA_WITH_SEED_SHA in Postfix.

I have got in main.cf

smtpd_tls_ciphers = high
smtpd_tls_protocols = TLSv1,!SSLv2,!SSLv3
smtpd_tls_exclude_ciphers = aNULL, DES, 3DES, MD5, DES+MD5, RC4

What should I add to smtpd_tls_exclude_ciphers to exclude SSL3_RSA_WITH_SEED_SHA?

  • Isn't that already disabled as you have disabled the whole SSLv3 protocol? (SSL3_RSA_WITH_SEED_SHA sounds SSLv3 specific?) – Håkan Lindqvist Mar 30 '14 at 12:57
  • I was thinking the same but I have done scan with OpenVAS and I am still getting weak ciphers are: SSL3_RSA_WITH_SEED_SHA on port 465/tcp – Marek Mar 30 '14 at 13:10

You can use BetterCrypto document for a secure configuration. After that, OpenVAS should not trigger any problem.

smtpd_tls_mandatory_protocols = !SSLv2, !SSLv3
tls_preempt_cipherlist = yes

Page 26, Section 2.3.4.Postfix: https://bettercrypto.org/static/applied-crypto-hardening.pdf

Please read Limitations, too.

I hope to be useful.
