Configures SSL protocols and cryptographic algorithms

Configures cipher list to restrict the use of certain cryptographic algorithms and protocols before establishing an encrypted SSL connection. The cipher list consists of one or more cipher strings separated by colons. Note that all cipher strings are case sensitive.

If the feature is enabled, the default value is:

That means: SSL v3.0, TLS v1.0 and TLS v1.1 are enabled(SSL v2.0 and TLS v1.2 are disabled). Cipher suites using 128 or 256 bit AES and remove anonymous DH algorithms, then sort the current cipher list in order of encryption algorithm key length.
