Free API for website SSL implementation testing

High-Tech Bridge SA : 06 January, 2016  (New Product)
Webmasters can now take advantage of a free API to provide security testing services for SSL/TLS implementations
Free API for website SSL implementation testing

High-Tech Bridge has opened a free to use API for the company's SSL security testing service, which verifies the security and reliability of SSL/TLS implementation on any website or web app according to PCI DSS requirements, NIST guidelines and industry best-practices.

The free  SSL/TLS security testing service was launched by High-Tech Bridge in October 2015, enabling the test of any server or service working over SSL-encrypted protocol (e.g. HTTPS, POP3S, IMAP3, SMTPS, LDAPS, FTPS, etc). Since then, almost 75,000 people have tested their servers and significantly improved reliability and security of their data encryption, including  leading email providers.

The API can be integrated into existing or new software to perform functions such as a regular security check of a website or app. Web development teams and website owners will be able to use the SSL/TLS checking service to feed into automatically generated reports.

Ilia Kolochenko, High-Tech Bridge’s CEO and Chief Architect of ImmuniWeb® web security testing platform, says:
“At High-Tech Bridge we like sharing our knowledge and skills, enabling users to make their technical infrastructure more secure and robust.

The new API will enable anyone to test reliability and security of their servers – not only web servers, but many others such as email servers for example. Today many people associate SSL/TLS encryption only with HTTPS, but actually, there are far more protocols that rely on SSL data encryption. Usually people forget to test security and reliability of non-HTTPS services, our free online testing service and the free API will change this situation.

We are currently working on other free online services aimed to make Web a safer place, stay tuned.”

High-Tech Bridge has also recently implemented a  Live SSL Security World Map showing the state of security of recently tested SSL/TLS servers located in all over the world.
