Description (last modified by Maxim Dounin)

Documentation for ssl_ciphers needs updating, it still lists "HIGH:!ADH:!MD5" (and suggests to use !ADH in the example).

Default is HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5 since 1.0.5.

comment:2 by Артем Давыдов, 8 years ago

Maxim, then documentation should be changed to reflect this. It still states that insecure defaults are being used.
