• Getting a perfect score on the SSL Labs Server Test

    I decided to take it as a challenge to get a full perfect score on the de facto standard of SSL implementation quality, the Qualys SSL Labs Server Test.

    Needless to say, getting a perfect score is not without cost. For example, many browsers will be incapable of accessing the site. For this reason, I decided use a “disposable” domain name: ssl100.quantum2.xyz, which also runs on a separate IPv6 address to prevent any contamination on this website (there is no IPv4 since I didn’t have a disposable address), so you will need IPv6 access.

    Incidentally, this also gets an A+ on securityheaders.io.
