Following the recent Poodle vulnerability, and the general best practice that you should always use the most secure protocols available, I have been spending some time reconfiguring servers.
Setting the order of ciphers, and enabling Forward Secrecy in Windows requires editing the registry – a lot. This is susceptible to errors, as the process is manual. Also, it doesn’t really give you a holistic picture of the before and after settings.
I stumbled across this tool from Nartac Software – IISCrypto. A free tool that shows you the current settings that you have for SSL/TLS, and a quick and easy way to change the active protocols and re-order the ciphers.
It is speedy and accurate. Perfect for updating a number of servers/systems manually.
