A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
Products are beginning to appear that will not support older versions of SSL/TLS when configured in a more secure mode.
TLS 1.2 has been final since August 2008. See also Bug#4873188 for TLS 1.1 which is over 3 years old.
Would be good to get this done for the next JDK, otherwise would have to wait for the next release.
