README

The SSL Observatory is still a work in progress.

WARNING: This code is not suitable for production systems, it is experimental.
For example, low rights users can interfere with the scripts this thing uses,
and database use is done without privilege seperation, tmp file access is
willy nilly and we frequently run with privileges we don't need... so be
careful.

This is the complicated codebase of scripts that we used to collect and
process the EFF SSL Observatory dataset.  The most important top-level scripts
are as follows:

scan/          -- scripts for scanning IPv4 space and recording TCP port 443
                  responses in .results files (you also get our .results files
                  via bittorrent from https://www.eff.org/observatory)

dbconnect.py   -- make yourself a MySQL database for the SSL certificates,
                  then customise this file with your username, password, and
                  database name

launch_parsers -- edit this to set the path where your .results files reside,
                  then run it to build the raw certs* tables and the valid_certs
                  table of valid certificates 

transvalid.py  -- once you have a valid_certs table, run this to compute a more
                  sophisticated notion of which certs are valid in real
                  browsers; this updates the raw certs* tables

rebuild.sh     -- run this to build all the important tables in the neatest
                  and most correct way, once transvalidity has been evaluated

The observatory stores data in MySQL, which you will need to have installed.
The mysql program will also need to be in your path. We recommend you set
the following values in your ~/.my.cnf file (personal mysql configuration file)

in the [client] section of ~/.my.cnf (template is often installed in 
/etc/my.cnf or /etc/mysql/my.cnf)

user=YOUR_DB_USERNAME_WITH_ADMIN_RIGHTS
host=localhost
password=YOUR_DB_PASSWORD
database=observatory

Note that keeping passwords in your home directory might not be a great idea.

Once you install MySQL, you will need to establish a username and password as 
well as perform a "create database observatory;" (or whatever name you like)
so that you will have somewhere to put your data in mysql.
 
You will then need to make some configuration adjustments to the observatory's
scripts in order help them find your data and know where to import it. The 
README.schema file has some tips about this, and explains a bit about what you
will actually find in the tables once the data is imported.

After you have a working import of the data, you may want to explore it with
queries, the questions subdirectory contains example sql and python queries.
Understanding these can help you craft your own. The data definately has some
quirks, it is frequently useful to use limits on simple queries in order to
get an example of what you are looking for. For example:

jesse@floop:~/sslscanner$ mysql
Reading table information for completion of table and column names
You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.
