After looking at packet exchange I think that in ServerKeyExchange
packet (which comes from bshop.esprit.com) there is bad signature
of DHE parameters (Ys,p,g).
In DHE server key exchange DH parameters are signed with server private
key and client should check this signature to prevent man-in-the-middle
attack. This looks like this parameters are signed with private key
that is not compatible with certificate sent to client with Certificate
One workaround of this problem is to disable EDH ciphers, for example:
$ openssl s_client -connect bshop.esprit.com:443 -cipher 'ALL:!EDH'
