SSLScan queries SSL services, such as HTTPS, in order to determine the ciphers that are supported. I wrote a patch to give sslscan the ability to scan IPv6 hosts. Here I like to give you some hints how to use the new version:
$ wget sslscan-1.8.2 $ tar -xvf sslscan-1.8.2.tgz $ cd sslscan-1.8.2 $ wget -O sslscan-ipv6.patch http://git.io/sFU24g $ patch -p2 < sslscan-ipv6.patch
You want to patch the Makefile:
$ wget http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/sslscan.git/plain/sslscan-makefile.patch $ patch < sslscan-makefile.patch $ make
How to scan IPv6:
$ ./sslscan --no-failed [2a00:1450:4001:c02::66]:443 $ ./sslscan -6 --no-failed google.com $ ./sslscan --starttls --verbose --no-failed your.mail.server:587
