This SSL Checker evaluates SSL certificates based on the following criteria:
- Key size: A larger key size indicates stronger encryption.
- 4 points: Key size of 4096 bits or higher
- 3 points: Key size of 2048 bits
- 1 point: Key size of 1024 bits
- Signature algorithm: A strong signature algorithm ensures better authenticity verification.
- 3 points: Strong signature algorithms (e.g., sha384WithRSAEncryption, sha512WithRSAEncryption, ecdsa-with-SHA384, ecdsa-with-SHA512)
- 1 point: Other signature algorithms
- Remaining days of certificate validity: A longer remaining validity period indicates active SSL configuration maintenance.
- 3 points: More than 365 days remaining
- 2 points: Between 180 and 365 days remaining
- 1 point: Between 1 and 180 days remaining
The total score ranges from 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest possible score.
