Useful Tools: SSL Checker Software & Sites 29 MAR 2013

certificate_good_serverWorried that your SSL certificate installation process seemed to run a little too smoothly?

Enter SSLShopper’s nifty SSL Checker, an online utility which will help you diagnose problems with your SSL certificate installation. You can verify the SSL certificate on your web server to make sure it is correctly installed, valid, trusted and doesn’t give any errors to any of your users.

To use the SSL Checker, simply enter your server’s hostname (must be public) in the text box and click the Check SSL button!

Basically the SSL Checker makes it easy to verify your SSL certificates by connecting to your server and displaying the results of the SSL connection including what SSL certificate is installed and whether it gives out the correct intermediate certificates. The SSL Checker even lets you set up a reminder of a certificate’s expiration so you don’t forget to renew your certificate on time!

Oh, and it has a code snippet which allows it to be added to your own site, though I’m not entirely sure why one would do that.

Useful little utility then.
