Check for the Sweet32 vulnerability

If the result is positive, there is no need for further action. If the result is negative, please read the following instructions.

Result positive Not vulnerable to Sweet32.
Result negativ Vulnerable to Sweet32.
Description The server is vulnerable to Sweet32, which allows an attacker under certain circumstances to decrypt parts of the communication if large amounts of data are transferred over a connection.
Background The attack exploits 64-bit block ciphers. The Sweet32 attack allows an attacker, under certain circumstances, to recover small pieces of text when encrypted with 64-bit block ciphers (such as 3DES). The attack is not very easy to perform, so the threat is limited.
Consequence The server is vulnerable through Sweet32, which allows an attacker to decrypt the communication.
Solution/Tips Wherever possible, it is best not to use triple DES. Deactivate block ciphers with a block length of 64 bits.
