Deployment Method: Individual Install, Upgrade, & Uninstall

To install SSL Certificate Verifier, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To upgrade SSL Certificate Verifier, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


To uninstall SSL Certificate Verifier, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:


Deployment Method:


This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Enter Your Internal Repository Url

(this should look similar to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/)

2. Setup Your Environment

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

2. Get the package into your environment

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://community.chocolatey.org/api/v2/. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Copy Your Script

choco upgrade sslverifier -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade sslverifier -y --source="'INTERNAL REPO URL'" 

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

- name: Install sslverifier
    name: sslverifier

See docs at https://docs.chef.io/resource_chocolatey_package.html.

cChocoPackageInstaller sslverifier
    Name     = "sslverifier"
    Version  = "1.5.7"
    Source   = "INTERNAL REPO URL"

Requires cChoco DSC Resource. See docs at https://github.com/chocolatey/cChoco.

package { 'sslverifier':
  ensure   => '1.5.7',
  provider => 'chocolatey',
  source   => 'INTERNAL REPO URL',

Requires Puppet Chocolatey Provider module. See docs at https://forge.puppet.com/puppetlabs/chocolatey.

Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 20 Mar 2021.



  • Validates the SSL certificate and validates all certificates in the chain for possible errors;
  • Implements certificate expiration checking. Certificate expiration is checked for all certificates in the chain;
  • The tool also checks certificates for all possible redirection URLs;
  • Writes trace/debug log for each processed entry;
  • Provides an ability to save server list to a file and read the list from a file.

Main Window


Main window contains a list of remote SSL/TLS servers and control buttons. There are three possible validation outcomes:

  • Ok
    Client was able to successfully connect to remote server over SSL/TLS and its certificate passed all validation checks based on current settings.

  • Error
    Client was either, not able to connect to remote server over SSL/TLS or its certificate failed certificate validation checks.

  • Warning
    Client was able to successfully connect to remote server over SSL/TLS and its certificate passed all validation checks, but its certificate is about to expire:

When selecting particular entry, a trace log with certificate details is shown. Right-click on remote server entry and selecting entry properties it is possible to configure proxy settings if necessary:

Certificate View

Additionally, there is certificate view which is located under Certificates tab:

Certificate view dialog shows certificate chain and errors. Native errors shows potential issues with selected certificate itself. Propagated errors show potential issues propagated from upper level certificates (intermediate CA certificates). The following image shows errors associated with a certificate that failed validation checks:

By pressing View Certificate button, a certificate UI dialog (provided by operating system) is shown.

Application Settings

Application contains several settings, which are invoked via Options -> Settings:

In this dialog, you can configure some validation options:

  • Strict EKU validation
    When enabled, this option will require that entire certificate chain is valid for Server Authentication enhanced key usage. Otherwise, Server Authentication EKU is checked on leaf certificate only.

  • Allow user trust
    By default, certificate chains are built against trusted root CA store in machine context (local computer). Manually added trusted root CAs in current user store are not trusted by default.

  • Require minimum RSA public key length
    Enforces RSA public key length which must be equals or greater than specified value. This settings has effect only on RSA public keys. ECC (ellyptic curve cryptography) key length is not enforced.

  • Protocol list
    Specifies allowed SSL/TLS protocols. SSL Verifier Tool attempts to connect to remote server using the best protocol. If connection fails and there are other allowed protocols, they are attempted until connection succeeds or there are more allowed SSL/TLS protocols, otherwise, connection will fail.

  • Invalidate weak signature algorithm
    When enabled, specifies a set of disallowed signature algorithm for leaf and intermediate CA certificates. Signature algorithm list is not applied to root (presented in a self-signed form) are not checked.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
