Target Info - SSL Options

The SSL Options section provides settings for enabling Secure Sockets Layer and related security protocols to enable an encrypted link between the test using the given target and target server(s) to ensure privacy.



  • Enable SSL 2.0 client handshake: Check this box during target creation (or while editing an existing target) if Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) should be used to connect to the server.
  • Enable SSL 3.0: Check this box during target creation (or while editing an existing target) if Secure Sockets Layer 3.0 (SSL 3.0) should be used to connect to the server.
  • Enable TLS 1.0: Check this box during target creation (or while editing an existing target) if Transport Layer Security 1.0 (TLS 1.0) should be used to connect to the server.
  • Enable TLS 1.1: Check this box during target creation (or while editing an existing target) if Transport Layer Security 1.1 (TLS 1.1) should be used to connect to the server.
  • Enable TLS 1.2: Check this box during target creation (or while editing an existing target) if Transport Layer Security 1.2 (TLS 1.2) should be used to connect to the server. TLS 1.2 requires CloudTest 54.03 or later.

Server Name Indication (SNI) support for testing sites that use the Server Name Indication (SNI) standard is also provided in builds 54.03 and later. SNI is an extension to the TLS computer networking protocol.
