Result negativ Anonymous key exchange is supported
Description Your server is configured to allow connections without verifying the identity of your server.
Background The term Cipher Suite stands for a collection of cryptographic methods used (encryption of information). This collection includes the key exchange method, digital signature, encryption and cryptographic hash functions. This combination of cryptographic components ensures a secure connection between two parties, e.g. your mail program and a server. In the TLS protocol, the Cipher Suite (cryptographic procedure) determines which algorithms are to be used to establish a secure data connection and is decisively responsible for the security of the connection.
Consequence Your server is ready to establish very weak connections, which are vulnerable to Man-in-the-middle attacks. This can be used to read out mail content and misuse them for criminal purposes.
Solution/Tips If Anonymous key exchange is supported is reported, disable "Anonymous key exchange" support in encryption methodology.
