Certificate Search crt.sh

Datasets

Certificate search engine. crt.sh is based on the certificate transparency logs and provide wildcard search for domains.


Google Transparency Report

Datasets

Google's Transparency Report contains various information. It provides information about email encryption, HTTPS encryption, information about potentially harmful applications in Android, and live reports of traffic disruptions, such as censorship.

It provides a certificate search based on the certificate transparency logs, similar to crt.sh: https://transparencyreport.google.com/https/certificates


Mozilla Observatory

Tools

Website quality measurement tool. The website measures the quality of HTTP headers which improve security. Additionally, it provides inspections for the TLS certificate and SSH servers. It also includes many third party tools.


netray.io Internet Observatory

The Internet Observatory is a project by the RWTH Aachen University. It combines different scanning projects.

As of writing it contains information about:

  • DNS
  • HTTP2 and Server Push
  • QUIC
  • TCP Initial Window
  • Certificate Authority Aurthoization (CAA)

Passive SSL (CIRCL)

Datasets

Historical certificate dataset. Allows querying based on IP address or certificate.


Qualys SSL Labs

Tools

Test the quality of a server's or a client's SSL/TLS stack. Very useful to test a server. Provides a A-F rating scheme and shows vulnerabilities and weak protocols/cipher suites.


RIPE Atlas

Datasets | DNS | IP | Networks

RIPE operates a set of probes, which can be used to send pings or similar measurements. The probes are mainly placed in Europe but some are also in other continents.

All the collected measurements can be found in the RIPE Atlas Daily Archives. The blog post gives some more details.
