I'm using nginx as a reverse proxy and I'm trying to turn off sslv3 support.
I have found various answers both on here and other various sites. They all suggest all I need to do is add something like the following to the default http block in my nginx.conf
ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2; ssl_ciphers "ECDH+AESGCM:DH+AESGCM:ECDH+AES256:DH+AES256:ECDH+AES128:DH+AES:ECDH+3DES:DH+3DES:RSA+AESGCM:RSA+AES:RSA+3DES:!aNULL:!MD5:!DSS:!RC4"; ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
I've done that and have even tried this full config from https://cipherli.st/
ssl_ciphers "AES128+EECDH:AES128+EDH"; ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2; ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on; ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:10m; add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=63072000; includeSubdomains; preload"; add_header X-Frame-Options DENY; add_header X-Content-Type-Options nosniff; ssl_session_tickets off; # Requires nginx >= 1.5.9 ssl_stapling on; # Requires nginx >= 1.3.7 ssl_stapling_verify on; # Requires nginx => 1.3.7 resolver $DNS-IP-1 $DNS-IP-2 valid=300s; resolver_timeout 5s;
I still only get a 'C' rating on SSL Labs (regardless of any change I make), with the following reasons
This server is vulnerable to the POODLE attack. If possible, disable SSL 3 to mitigate. Grade capped to C.
This server accepts the RC4 cipher, which is weak. Grade capped to B.
I have also restarted the server so I know the configuration changes have been applied.
