Read Timeout / Session Resumption IDs not accepted

Hi there,


at first thanks for the great tool. It's rather interesting to get an overview over certain

TLS-based sites on the net as well as comparing our own stack with others.

Anyway we've got two problems: says "Read Timeout", the only difference is that the stack triggers an embedded Tomcat

container. A onnection is etablished, handshake finishes successfully, we can't tell why

your system claims there is a read timeout. Could you please have a look?

is the same TLS stack but only with a small HTTP-like server thread. (currently offline)

Session resuming has been implemented according to the RFCs and tested againt OpenSSL,

GnuTLS and several browsers. We've implemented the capability of long-term session resuming

which is working fine everytime someone connects with Google Chrome (long term, too).

However your system claims the ID is assigned but not accepted. I tracked all the Hello-

handshakes and I can't see any session ID submitted by your system. There is no session

identifier the server could use to resume an existing session. (the length field is zero)

I compared our logs with other servers listed as "Session Resumption: Yes", the behaviour is

the same.


Thanks for hints.


Best regards,
