ciphertest is a Shell library typically used in Security, TLS applications. ciphertest has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities and it has low support. However ciphertest has a Non-SPDX License. You can download it from GitHub. is a "better" SSL cipher checker in that it uses gnutls, which has support for many more configurations than openssl. It tests potentially ~3,200 different configurations (but does some pre-optimization so that it minimizes "failed" checks.). It relies on openssl and gnutls-cli. sudo apt-get install gnutls-bin.

            ciphersweet - decryptRow: getting error when trying to decrypt row
            Asked 2021-Mar-26 at 07:21

            I need some help by using the function decryptRow(). ...


            Answered 2021-Mar-24 at 23:39

            The exception is due to null being passed to decrypt() here: . Either $row[$field] contain null, or there's no such element in $row.

            Inspect it with a debugger, or add some debug statements into your catch (e.g. var_dump($rowP, $row)), then check if the data contained in $row is what you expect it to be. It's also worth checking the list of fields in $rowP->fieldsToEncrypt.



            Cipher.getInstance() slow when called from multiple JVM instances on unix platforms
            Asked 2020-May-05 at 11:13

            I have an application that spawns multiple short-lived java (IBM Java 8) programs in which they need to make an SSL request to a server. I am running into an issue where if I run several instances of these in parallel they all take an equal amount, and much longer time to run. In some cases it saves almost no time as if I had run them serially. For example, if 1 instance takes 3 seconds to run, if I run 5 in parallel they might all take 15 seconds to run.

            I have noticed that this does not seem to be an issue on Windows systems. I'm not very familiar with the Java security libraries, and I did find this post Slow SecureRandom initialization which seems like it might be the root cause, but I was unable to get the code snippets to work for the Cipher.getInstance() call.

            To demonstrate the problem, I have distilled it down to this code snippet:

            IBMJCEPlusFIPS is a U.S. export-controlled provider. Due to this, IBM JCE verifies the signatures of all bundled security JARs, in an attempt to enforce this.

            If you take a few stacktrace samples of the main thread, you will see that it is indeed mainly busy verifying JAR files and a self-test (omitted here).
