Qualys Certificate Assessment Highlights

Certificate grade generation

Qualys Certificate Assessment generates certificate instance grades using a straightforward methodology that allows administrators to assess often overlooked server SSL/TLS configurations without having to become SSL experts. Certificate grades reflect the strength of the underlying application or service configuration, and pinpoint specific configuration settings that highlight the use of best practices or lack thereof. It also allows you to quickly remediate cipher suites, protocols and key exchange parameters on the underlying endpoints.


Qualys Certificate Assessment identifies out-of-policy certificates with weak signatures or key length, and shows you how many unique Certificate Authorities were found in the environment and how many certificates each one issued.

Includes Certificate Inventory (CRI)

Working in tandem with Qualys Certificate Inventory, which is included for free, it performs continuous and complete detection and cataloging of every certificate from any Certificate Authority.

Look for specific certificates and grades

Qualys Certificate Assessment features a fast and powerful search engine to look for specific certificates, vulnerabilities, configurations and grades. Once you find certificates and configurations across your enterprise that are weak and vulnerable, you can take remediation steps immediately. The query syntax is intuitive and the product has a type-ahead feature that makes it easy to craft queries. Qualys Certificate Assessment’s search engine lets you:

  • Create queries with multiple variables and search criteria such as certificate signature algorithm, issuer, protocols and enabled cipher suites, so that you can look for all instances that have SHA1 certificates from a particular Certificate Authority, on assets that have SSLv3 enabled along with RC4 cipher suites

  • Sort, filter and save search queries

  • Download search results in various formats such as CSV, pdf, doc or html

  • Create dashboard widgets from queries that are interesting or often used

Combine your certificate data with configuration and vulnerability information

Qualys Certificate Assessment continuously correlates certificate and configuration information with vulnerability data, so that your remediation prioritization decisions are rooted in accurate, up-to-date, applicable data, not in outdated spreadsheets or arbitrary schedules. That way, you’ll stay a step ahead of the hackers, replacing certificates and fixing underlying TLS vulnerabilities before bad guys exploit them.
