<td style="vertical-align: top; max-width: 60em; padding-left: 1em.75rem;">The goal of this document is to help operational teams with the configuration of TLS on servers. All Mozilla sites websites and deployment deployments should follow the recommendations below.
The Operations Security (OpSec) team Mozilla maintains this document as a reference guide to navigate for navigating the TLS landscape, as well as a [https://ssl-config. It contains information on TLS protocols, known issues and vulnerabilities, configuration examples and testing toolsgenerator] to assist system administrators. Changes are reviewed and merged by the OpSec team, Mozilla Operations Security and broadcasted to the various Operational Enterprise Information Security teams.
Updates to this page should be submitted to the [ source server-side-tls] repository on GitHub. Issues related to the [ configuration generator] are maintained in their own [ GitHub repository].
If you are looking for In the configuration generatorinterests of usability and maintainability, click these guidelines have been considerably simplified from the image below:<br />[[Image:Security/Archive/Server-side-tls-config-generatorSide TLS 4.png0|500px|center|link= guidelines]].

Pick the right correct configuration depending on your audience. If you do not need backward compatibility, and are building a service for modern clients only (post Firefox 27/Chrome 22), then use the Modern configuration. Otherwise, prefer the Intermediate configuration. Use the Old backward compatible configuration only if your service will be accessed by very old clients, such as Windows XP IE6, or ancient libraries & bots.:

* Rationale:* AES256-GCM is prioritized above its 128 bits variant, * All cipher suites are [ forward secret] and [ authenticated]** The cipher suites are all strong and ChaCha20 because so we assume that most modern devices allow the client to choose, as they will know best if they have support AESNI instructions and thus benefit from fast and constant time for hardware-accelerated AES. ** We recommend ECDSA certificates with P256 using P-256, as other curves may P-384 provides negligable improvements to security and Ed25519 is not be yet widely supported everywhere. RSA signatures on ECDSA certificates are permitted because very few CAs sign with ECDSA at the moment.* DHE is removed entirely because it is slow in comparison with ECDHE, and all modern clients support elliptic curve key exchanges.* SHA1 signature algorithm is removed in favor of SHA384 for AES256 and SHA256 for AES128.

* Rationale:* ChaCha20 is prefered as the fastest and safest in-software * All cipher, followed by AES128. Unlike the modern configuration, we do not assume clients support AESNI and thus do not prioritize AES256 above 128 and ChaCha20. There has been discussions (suites are [httphttps://wwwen.mail-archivewikipedia.comorg/wiki/Forward_secrecy forward secret] and [ authenticated]** TLS 1.html 1]2 is the minimum supported protocol, as recommended by [httphttps://wwwtools.mail-archiveietf.comorg/html/ 21 RFC 7525]) on whether AES256 extra security was worth its computing cost in software (without AESNI), PCI DSS, and others** ECDSA certificates are recommended over RSA certificates, as they allow the results use of ECDHE with Windows 7 clients using Internet Explorer 11** The cipher suites are far from obvious. At all strong and so we allow the momentclient to choose, AES128 is preferred, because it provides good security, is really fast, and seems to be more resistant to timing they will know best if they have support for hardware-accelerated AES* DES-CBC3-SHA and EDH-RSA-DES-CBC3-SHA * Windows XP (including all embedded versions) are maintained no longer supported by Microsoft, eliminating the need for backward compatibility with clients that do not support AES.many older protocols and ciphers** While the goal is to support a broad range of clients, we reasonably disable a number of ciphers that have little support (such as SEEDARIA, Camellia, CAMELLIA3DES, ...and SEED).** 90 days is the recommended maximum certificate lifespan, to encourage certificate issuance automation
== <span style="color:gray;">'''Old'''</span> backward compatibility ==
This configuration is the compatible with a number of very old ciphersuite that works with all clients back to Windows XP/IE6. It , and should be used only as a last resort only.

Prefer the version-specific files instead. == Previous versions == * None = Mandatory discards = * aNULL contains non-authenticated Diffie-Hellman key exchanges, that are subject to Man-In-The-Middle (MITM) attacks* eNULL contains null-encryption ciphers (cleartext)* EXPORT are legacy weak ciphers that were marked as exportable by US law* RC4 contains ciphers that use the deprecated ARCFOUR algorithm* DES contains ciphers that use the deprecated Data Encryption Standard* SSLv2 contains all ciphers that were defined in the old version of the SSL standard, now deprecated* MD5 contains all the ciphers that use the deprecated message digest 5 as the hashing algorithm = Forward Secrecy = The concept of forward secrecy is simple: client and server negotiate a key that never hits the wire, and is destroyed at the end of the session. The RSA private from the server is used to sign a Diffie-Hellman key exchange between the client and the server. The pre-master key obtained from the Diffie-Hellman handshake is then used for encryption. Since the pre-master key is specific to a connection between a client and a server, and used only for a limited amount of time, it is called Ephemeral. With Forward Secrecy, if an attacker gets a hold of the server's private key, it will not be able to decrypt past communications. The private key is only used to sign the DH handshake, which does not reveal the pre-master key. Diffie-Hellman ensures that the pre-master keys never leave the client and the server, and cannot be intercepted by a MITM. == DHE handshake and dhparam == When an ephemeral Diffie-Hellman cipher is used, the server and the client negotiate a pre-master key using the Diffie-Hellman algorithm. This algorithm requires that the server sends the client a prime number and a generator. Neither are confidential, and are sent in clear text. However, they must be signed, such that a MITM cannot hijack the handshake. As an example, TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256 works as follow:[[File:Dhe_params.png|frame|server key exchange message as displayed in Wireshark]][[File:Dhe_client_params.png|frame|client key exchange message as displayed in Wireshark]]# Server sends Client a [ SERVER KEY EXCHANGE] message during the SSL Handshake. The message contains:## Prime number ''p''## Generator ''g''## Server's Diffie-Hellman public value ''A = g^X mod p'', where ''X'' is a private integer chosen by the server at random, and never shared with the client. (note: A is called ''pubkey'' in wireshark)## signature ''S'' of the above (plus two random values) computed using the Server's private RSA key# Client verifies the signature ''S''# Client sends server a [ CLIENT KEY EXCHANGE] message. The message contains:## Client's Diffie-Hellman public value ''B = g^Y mod p'', where ''Y'' is a private integer chosen at random and never shared. (note: B is called ''pubkey'' in wireshark)# The Server and the Client can now calculate the pre-master secret using each other's public values:## server calculates ''PMS = B^X mod p''## client calculates ''PMS = A^Y mod p''# Client sends a [ CHANGE CIPHER SPEC] message to the server, and both parties continue the handshake using ENCRYPTED HANDSHAKE MESSAGES The size of the prime number ''p'' constrains the size of the pre-master key ''PMS'', because of the modulo operation. A smaller prime almost means weaker values of ''A'' and ''B'', which could leak the secret values ''X'' and ''Y''. Thus, the prime ''p'' should not be smaller than the size of the RSA private key. == Pre-defined DHE groups == Instead of using pre-configured DH groups, or generating their own with "openssl dhparam", operators should use the pre-defined DH groups ffdhe2048, ffdhe3072 or ffdhe4096 recommended by the IETF in [RFC 7919]. These groups are audited and may be more resistant to attacks than ones randomly generated. Note: if you must support old Java clients, Dh groups larger than 1024 bits may block connectivity (see [[#DHE_and_Java]]). === ffdhe2048 ===<source>-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----MIIBCAKCAQEA//////////+t+FRYortKmq/cViAnPTzx2LnFg84tNpWp4TZBFGQz+8yTnc4kmz75fS/jY2MMddj2gbICrsRhetPfHtXV/WVhJDP1H18GbtCFY2VVPe0a87VXE15/V8k1mE8McODmi3fipona8+/och3xWKE2rec1MKzKT0g6eXq8CrGCsyT7YdEIqUuyyOP7uWrat2DX9GgdT0Kj3jlN9K5W7edjcrsZCwenyO4KbXCeAvzhzffi7MA0BM0oNC9hkXL+nOmFg/+OTxIy7vKBg8P+OxtMb61zO7X8vC7CIAXFjvGDfRaDssbzSibBsu/6iGtCOGEoXJf//////////wIBAg==-----END DH PARAMETERS-----</source> === ffdhe3072 ===<source>-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----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-----END DH PARAMETERS-----</source=== ffdhe4096 ===<source>-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----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-----END DH PARAMETERS-----</source> == DHE and ECDHE support ==Most modern clients that support both ECDHE and DHE typically prefer the former, because ECDHE provides faster handshakes than DHE ([], []). Unfortunately, some widely used clients lack support for ECDHE and must then rely on DHE to provide perfect forward secrecy:* Android < 3.0.0* Java < 7* OpenSSL < 1.0.0 Note that schannel on Windows XP technically support DHE, but only with DSA keys, making it unusable on the internet in practice. == DHE and Java ==Java 6 and 7 do not support Diffie-Hellman parameters larger than 1024 bits. If your server expects to receive connections from java 6 clients and wants to enable PFS, it must provide a DHE parameter of 1024 bits. If keeping the compatibility with Java < 7 is a necessity, thus preventing the use of large DH keys, three solutions are available:* using custom 1024-bit DH parameters, different from Oakley group 2, preferably generated with '''openssl dhparam 1024''' ;* if the software used does not support custom DH parameters, like Apache HTTPd < 2.2.30, it is possible to keep using the 1024-bit DH Oakley group 2, knowing these clients may be at risk of a compromise;* it is also possible to completely disable DHE. This means that clients not supporting ECDHE will be reverting to static RSA, giving up Forward Secrecy. The case of Java 7 is a bit different. Java 7 supports ECDHE ciphers, so if the server provides ECDHE and prioritizes it before DHE ciphers using server side ordering, then Java 7 will use ECDHE and not care about the size of the DHE parameter. In this situation, the server can use 2048 bits DHE parameters for all other clients. However, if the server does not support ECDHE, then Java 7 will use DHE and fail if the parameter is larger than 1024 bits. When failing, the handshake will not attempt to fall back to the next cipher in line, but simply fail with the error "java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not generate DH keypair". {| class="wikitable"|-! Java supported !! ECDHE prioritized !! smallest DH parameter size|-| 6 || irrelevant || 1024|-| 7 || NO || 1024|-| 7 || YES || 2048|-| 8 || irrelevant || 2048|}  = OCSP Stapling =When connecting to a server, clients should verify the validity of the server certificate using either a Certificate Revocation List (CRL), or an Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) record. The problem with CRL is that the lists have grown huge and takes forever to download. OCSP is much more lightweight, as only one record is retrieved at a time. But the side effect is that OCSP requests must be made to a 3rd party OCSP responder when connecting to a server, which adds latency and potential failures. In fact, the OCSP responders operated by CAs are often so unreliable that browser will fail silently if no response is received in a timely manner. This reduces security, by allowing an attacker to DoS an OCSP responder to disable the validation. The solution is to allow the server to send its cached OCSP record during the TLS handshake, therefore bypassing the OCSP responder. This mechanism saves a roundtrip between the client and the OCSP responder, and is called OCSP Stapling. The server will send a cached OCSP response only if the client requests it, by announcing support for the '''status_request''' TLS extension in its CLIENT HELLO. [[File:OCSP_Stapling.png]] Most servers will cache OCSP response for up to 48 hours. At regular intervals, the server will connect to the OCSP responder of the CA to retrieve a fresh OCSP record. The location of the OCSP responder is taken from the Authority Information Access field of the signed certificate. For example, with StartSSL: <pre>Authority Information Access: OCSP - URI:</pre> Support for OCSP Stapling can be tested using the '''-status''' option of the OpenSSL client. <pre>$ openssl s_client -connect -status...======================================OCSP Response Data: OCSP Response Status: successful (0x0) Response Type: Basic OCSP Response Version: 1 (0x0)...</pre> = Session Resumption = Session Resumption is the ability to reuse the session secrets previously negotiated between a client and a server for a new TLS connection. This feature greatly increases the speed establishment of TLS connections after the first handshake, and is very useful for connections that use Perfect Forward Secrecy with a slow handshake like DHE. Session Resumption can be performed using one of two methods: # session identifier: When establishing a first session, the server generates an arbitrary session ID sent to the client. On subsequent connections, the client sends the session ID in the CLIENT HELLO message, indicating to the server it wants to reuse an existing state. If the server can find a corresponding state in its local cache, it reuse the session secrets and skips directly to exchanging encrypted data with the client. If the cache stored on the server is compromised, session keys from the cache can be used to decrypt past and future sessions.# session tickets: Storing a cache on the server might be problematic for systems that handle very large numbers of clients. Session tickets provide an alternative where the server sends the encrypted state (ticket) to the client instead of storing it in its local cache. The client can send back the encrypted state to the server in subsequent connections, thus allowing session resumption. This method requires symmetric keys on the server to encrypt and decrypt session tickets. If the keys are compromised, an attacker obtains access to session keys and can decrypt past and future sessions. Session resumption is a very useful performance feature of TLS, but also carries a significant amount of risk. Most servers do not purge sessions or ticket keys, thus increasing the risk that a server compromise would leak data from previous (and future) connections. The current recommendation for web servers is to enable session resumption and benefit from the performance improvement, but to restart servers daily when possible. This ensure that sessions get purged and ticket keys get renewed on a regular basis. = HSTS: HTTP Strict Transport Security = [ HSTS] is a HTTP header sent by a server to a client, indicating that the current site must only be accessed over HTTPS until expiration of the HSTS value is reached. The header format is very simple, composed only of a '''max-age''' parameter that indicates when the directive should expire. max-age is expressed in seconds. A typical value is 15768000 seconds, or 6 months.<pre>Strict-Transport-Security: max-age=15768000</pre> HSTS is becoming more and more of a standard, but should only be used when the site's operators are confident that HTTPS will be available continuously for the duration of max-age. Once the HSTS header is sent to client, HTTPS cannot be disabled on the site until the last client has expired its HSTS record. = HPKP: Public Key Pinning Extension for HTTP = See [ RFC7469]. HPKP is an '''experimental''' HTTP header sent by a server to a client, to indicate that some certificates related to the site should be pinned in the client. The client would thus refuse to establish a connection to the server if the pining does not comply. Due to its experimental nature, HPKP is currently '''not''' recommended on production sites. More informations can be found on the [ MDN description page]. = Certificates Switching = Certificates Switching is a technique by which a server provides a different X.509 certificate to a client based on specific selection criteria. This technique is used primarily to maintain backward compatibility with very old clients, such as Internet Explorer 6 on Windows XP SP2. On XPSP2, IE6 is only able to establish connections to servers that provide a certificate signed with sha1WithRSAEncryption. Those certificates are not issued by modern CAs anymore, and all sites have been encouraged to upgrade to SHA-256 certificates. As modern browsers gradually block connections backed by SHA-1 certificates, sites that need to maintain compatibility with XPSP2 must implement certificates switching to provide a SHA-1 cert to old clients and a SHA-256 cert to modern ones. Certificate switching can be implemented in various ways. A simplistic approach is to select the certificate based on the protocol version (SHA-256 to TLS clients, SHA-1 to SSLv3 ones). A more sophisticated approach consists at looking inside the CLIENT HELLO for SHA-256 support in the "signature_algorithms" extension. Few servers currently support cert switching. It is possible to implement it using [ HAProxy], and vendors like Cloudflare propose it in their offering. = Recommended Server Configurations = All configuration samples have been moved to the configuration generator and the [[Security/TLS_Configurations]] archive.

The attack allows a MITM attacker to recover plaintext values by encrypting the same message multiple times. BEAST is mitigated in TLS1.1 and above. more: == LUCKY13 == Lucky13 is another attack on CBC mode that listen for padding checks to decrypt ciphertextconfmore: == RC4 weaknesses == As of February 2015, the IETF explicitely prohibits the use of RC4: [ RFC 7465]. It has been proven that RC4 biases in the first 256 bytes of a cipherstream can be used to recover encrypted text. If the same data is encrypted a very large number of times, then an attacker can apply statistical analysis to the results and recover the encrypted text. While hard to perform, this attack shows that it is time to remove RC4 from the list of trusted ciphers. In a public discussion ([ bug 927045json rolling version]), it has been recommended to replace RC4 with 3DES. This would impact Internet Explorer 7 and 8 users that, depending on the OS, do not support AES, and will negotiate only RC4 or 3DES ciphers. Internet Explorer uses the cryptographic library “schannel”, which is OS dependent. schannel supports AES in Windows Vista, but not in Windows XP. While 3DES provides more resistant cryptography, it is also 30 times slower and more cpu intensive than RC4. For large web infrastructure, the CPU cost of replacing RC4 with 3DES is non-zero. For this reason, we recommend that administrators evaluate their traffic patternsthese recommendations, and make the decision of replacing RC4 with 3DES on a per-case basis. At Mozilla, we evaluated that the impact on CPU usage is minor, and thus decided to replace RC4 with 3DES where backward compatibility is required. The root cause of the problem is information leakage caveat that occurs when data is compressed prior to encryption. If someone can repeatedly inject and mix arbitrary content with some sensitive and relatively predictable data, and observe the resulting encrypted stream, then he will be able to extract the unknown data from it. more: == BREACH == This is a more complex attack than CRIME, which does not require TLS-level compression (it still needs HTTP-level compression). In order to be successful, it requires to: # Be served from a server that uses HTTP-level compression# Reflect user-input in HTTP response bodies# Reflect a secret (such as a CSRF token) in HTTP response bodies more: == POODLE ([ CVE-2014-3566]) == POODLE is an attack on the padding used by SSLv3. It is a significant improvement of the BEAST attack which led the cryptography community to recommend disabling SSLv3 globally. <blockquote>they may change ''If you can arrange the message to be the correct length then the last block is 15 arbitrary bytes and the padding length (15). Then you arrange an interesting byte to be in the last position of a different block and duplicate that block to the end. If the record is accepted, then you know what the last byte contained because it decrypted to 15.'without warning'''Thus the attacker needs to be able to control some of the plaintext in order to align things in the messages and needs to be able to burn lots of connections (256 per byte, roughly). Thus a secret needs to be repeated in connection after connection (i.e. a cookie).'' source: Adam Langley in</blockquote> Daniel Stenberg (Mozilla, cUrl) has a good description of the exploitability of POODLE in Our guidelines maintain support for SSLv3 in the Old configuration only. This is required for clients on Windows XP service pack 1 & 2 that do not have support for TLSv1.0. Internet Explorer and Chrome on those platforms are impacted. Mozilla wants to be reachable from very old clients, to allow them to download a better browser. Therefore, we maintain SSLv3 'without providing backwards compatibility on a limited number of sites'''. But all sites that do not need that level of compatibility are encouraged As it may break things if you use it to implement the Intermediate configuration == Logjam attack on weak Diffie-Hellman == The Logjam attack describes methods of attacking TLS automatically configure your servers supporting DHE export cipherswithout review, and with weak (<= 1024 bit) Diffie Hellman groups. Modern TLS must we recommend you use DH parameters of 2048 bits and above, or only use ECDHE. The modern configuration in this guide provide configurations that are not impacted by this issue. The intermediate and old configurations are impacted, and administrators are encourage to use DH parameters of 2048 bits wherever possible. more: the [ = SSL and TLS Settings === SPDY == (see also and SPDY is a protocol that incorporate TLS, which attempts to reduce latency when loading pages. It is currently not an HTTP standard (albeit it is being drafted for HTTP 2.0), but is widely supported. SPDY version 3 is vulnerable to the CRIME attack (see also conf- this is due to the use of compression5. Clients currently implement a non-standard hack in with gzip in order to circumvent the vulnerability0. SPDY json version 4 is planned to include a proper fix. == TLS tickets (RFC 5077) == Once a TLS handshake has been negotiated between the server and the client, both may exchange a session ticket, which contains the session and is usually encrypted with AES-CBC 128bit. This AES key is generally static and only regenerated when the web server is restarted (with recent versions of Apache, it's stored in a specific file and also kept upon restarts). The key that encrypts TLS tickets in servers is very hard to manage and potentially introduces a security risk if not renewed regularly: if a server is breached, the key can be stolen and used to decrypt recorded TLS tickets, thus leaking session keys. TLS tickets do bring a performance benefit because of session resumption, but administrators that are more concerned about security than performance may want to disable them entirely. The trade-off we recommend is to implement restarts of web servers and force deletion of local caches to renew encryption keys. more information: = Cipher suites = Different libraries support different cipher suites and refer to them by different names. Mozilla maintains a list of [[Security/Cipher Suites|all known cipher suites]] and their corresponding names. == GnuTLS ciphersuite == Unlike OpenSSL, GnuTLS will panic if you give it ciphers aren't supported by the library. That makes it very difficult to share a default ciphersuite to use in GnuTLS. The next best thing is using the following ciphersuite, and removing the components that break on your own version: '''NONE:+VERS-TLS1.2:+VERS-TLS1.1:+VERS-TLS1.0:+ECDHE-RSA:+DHE-RSA:+RSA:+AES-128-GCM:+AES-128-CBC:+AES-256-CBC:+SIGN-RSA-SHA256:+SIGN-RSA-SHA384:+SIGN-RSA-SHA512:+SIGN-RSA-SHA224:+SIGN-RSA-SHA1:+SIGN-DSA-SHA256:+SIGN-DSA-SHA224:+SIGN-DSA-SHA1:+CURVE-ALL:+AEAD:+SHA256:+SHA384:+SHA1:+COMP-NULL''' A ciphersuite can be tested in GnuTLS using '''gnutls-cli'''. <source code=bash>$ gnutls-cli --versiongnutls-cli 3.1.26 $ gnutls-cli -l --priority NONE:+VERS-TLS1.2:+VERS-TLS1.1:+VERS-TLS1.0:+ECDHE-RSA:+DHE-RSA:+RSA:+AES-128-GCM:+AES-128-CBC:+AES-256-CBC:+SIGN-RSA-SHA256:+SIGN-RSA-SHA384:+SIGN-RSA-SHA512:+SIGN-RSA-SHA224:+SIGN-RSA-SHA1:+SIGN-DSA-SHA256:+SIGN-DSA-SHA224:+SIGN-DSA-SHA1:+CURVE-ALL:+AEAD:+SHA256:+SHA384:+SHA1:+COMP-NULLCipher suites for NONE:+VERS-TLS1.2:+VERS-TLS1.1:+VERS-TLS1.0:+ECDHE-RSA:+DHE-RSA:+RSA:+AES-128-GCM:+AES-128-CBC:+AES-256-CBC:+SIGN-RSA-SHA256:+SIGN-RSA-SHA384:+SIGN-RSA-SHA512:+SIGN-RSA-SHA224:+SIGN-RSA-SHA1:+SIGN-DSA-SHA256:+SIGN-DSA-SHA224:+SIGN-DSA-SHA1:+CURVE-ALL:+AEAD:+SHA256:+SHA384:+SHA1:+COMP-NULLTLS_ECDHE_RSA_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 0xc0, 0x2f TLS1.2TLS_ECDHE_RSA_AES_128_CBC_SHA256 0xc0, 0x27 TLS1.0TLS_ECDHE_RSA_AES_128_CBC_SHA1 0xc0, 0x13 SSL3.0TLS_ECDHE_RSA_AES_256_CBC_SHA1 0xc0, 0x14 SSL3.0TLS_DHE_RSA_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 0x00, 0x9e TLS1.2TLS_DHE_RSA_AES_128_CBC_SHA256 0x00, 0x67 TLS1.0TLS_DHE_RSA_AES_128_CBC_SHA1 0x00, 0x33 SSL3.0TLS_DHE_RSA_AES_256_CBC_SHA256 0x00, 0x6b TLS1.0TLS_DHE_RSA_AES_256_CBC_SHA1 0x00, 0x39 SSL3.0TLS_RSA_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 0x00, 0x9c TLS1.2TLS_RSA_AES_128_CBC_SHA256 0x00, 0x3c TLS1.0TLS_RSA_AES_128_CBC_SHA1 0x00, 0x2f SSL3.0TLS_RSA_AES_256_CBC_SHA256 0x00, 0x3d TLS1.0TLS_RSA_AES_256_CBC_SHA1 0x00, 0x35 SSL3.0 Certificate types: noneProtocols: VERS-TLS1.2, VERS-TLS1.1, VERS-TLS1.0Compression: COMP-NULLElliptic curves: CURVE-SECP256R1, CURVE-SECP384R1, CURVE-SECP521R1PK-signatures: SIGN-RSA-SHA256, SIGN-RSA-SHA384, SIGN-RSA-SHA512, SIGN-RSA-SHA224, SIGN-RSA-SHA1, SIGN-DSA-SHA256, SIGN-DSA-SHA224, SIGN-DSA-SHA1</source> A good way to debug the ciphersuite is by performing a test connection.
