Last week, I needed to make some changes to my employer's production website, but before I made those changes in production, I wanted to test them. Unfortunately for me, our dev server is unreachable by Qualys, so I had to come up with another way to test those changes.

Enter testssl.sh. testssl.sh is a shell script that can be used to do testing very simliar to what Qualys does, from a Unix system.

To get started, clone the testssl.sh repo:

git clone https://github.com/drwetter/testssl.sh.git

I was able to make and test the changes I needed on our dev system, before going to production. I was able to confirm that my changes were correct, in a non-production environment.

Many thanks to Dirk Wetter for this excellent tool.

Check it out.
