SSL handshake failure


Hello Guys,

We are running a website and have 3 servers behind Haproxy. We are getting following log entries [17/May/2017:12:37:21.319] main/2: SSL handshake failure

Can anyone know actual cause of this?



It could be everything from client bugs, obsolete (not matching server’s) SSL version or cipher suite or downgrade attacks.

Unless you are aware of any complaints, you don’t have to worry about this.


Hi, this bug can comes from the rng tools on ubuntu, just try to install rng-tools and restart it, it should works,


Thanks Fitati, i will explore this.
