Description
DES-based TLS cipher suites should be disabled. They are currently available but not enabled by default. To use them they must be explicitly enabled by an application, for example, by calling `SSLSocket.setEnabledCipherSuites`. Due to the age and insecurity of 56-bit DES, these cipher suites should no longer be available without additional intervention by the user or administrator through the `jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms` Security property.
Comments
This is mainly a change to the jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms Security property.
