Description Scott Dial 2020-05-14 15:49:19 UTC
OpenSSL 1.1.0 introduced an "enable-weak-ssl-ciphers" option to the Configure script. This option needs to be enabled to build RC4 and 3DES ciphers. It's a sensible default to not build those ciphers, but there use cases where compatibility with legacy clients is needed. It would be useful to add a "weak-ssl-ciphers" USE flag to enable this Configure option.
