Using SSLScan to determine supported cipers

SSLScan queries SSL services to determine the ciphers that are supported. This is a very useful tool if you wish to

SSLScan is designed to be easy, lean and fast. The output includes preferred ciphers of the SSL service, and the certificate and is in text and XML formats.

I was checking my Windows Server,

$ sslscan --rdp x.x.x.x
Version: 2.0.15-static
OpenSSL 1.1.1t-dev  xx XXX xxxx

Connected to x.x.x.x

Testing SSL server x.x.x.x on port 3389 using SNI name x.x.x.x

SSL/TLS Protocols:
SSLv2     disabled
SSLv3     disabled
TLSv1.0   disabled
TLSv1.1   disabled
TLSv1.2   enabled
TLSv1.3   disabled

  TLS Fallback SCSV:
Server supports TLS Fallback SCSV

  TLS renegotiation:
Session renegotiation not supported

  TLS Compression:
Compression disabled

TLSv1.2 not vulnerable to heartbleed

  Supported Server Cipher(s):
Preferred TLSv1.2  256 bits  ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384   Curve 25519 DHE 253
Accepted  TLSv1.2  128 bits  ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256   Curve 25519 DHE 253

You may want to scan by port level

$ sslscan x.x.x.x:8444
