Factoring RSA Export Keys (FREAK)

21 October 2022 - Articles

Factoring RSA Export Keys (FREAK) is an attack against “export ciphers suites” which are cipher suites that have intentionally limited security due to prior regulation within the United States. This regulation placed restrictions on the strength of encryption algorithms used in software for exportation. This attack was demonstrated in 2015 and can allow a threat actor who is able to perform an interception attack against HTTPS traffic to decrypt message contents.

It is recommended that:

  • All export cipher suites are disabled
