Installing cypher suites (keys)

Hello, I could not find information on how to install cypher keys in CWPanel. Any advice pointing me to the right information is welcome. :-)

Here, so you can learn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cipher_suite . I moved from a WHM Cpanel into CWPanel and must insert my ssl cyphersuite into CWPanel. Please, can anybody point me to the right direction?

https://bettercrypto.org/

/usr/local/cwpsrv/conf/cwpsrv.conf
Code: [Select]
..
ssl_protocols       TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
ssl_ciphers         HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5;
..
Took me about two minutes to find that.  ::)
Note the use of deprecated protocols!

you can also use nginx as proxy it will enable default nginx ciphers which i think is enough for you.

After a little more digging, even though OP wasn't concise in asking the question..
Use CWP Admin, Webserver Settings, WebServers conf editor
/usr/local/apache/conf.d/hostname-ssl.conf
Alter as follows:
 
Code: [Select]
..
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/hostname.key
SSLProtocol all -SSLv2 -SSLv3 -TLSv1 -TLSv1.1
SSLCipherSuite HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5:!3DES
..
Apply the same principal to other vhosts. This will be sufficient for an A rating at SSLLabs and will match up well with the majority of sites, Some older browsers will not be able to access your sites though.

ej, thank you very much. You were a bit poetic in my other thread, but I love poems :-) Stay safe and in good health.

Some say in ice.

I will test it and if any issue, I get back here. Thanks!

You're welcome.
Of course, you can individually specify the required protocols.
See your WHM/cPanel for an example:
ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305:ECDHE-RSA-CHACHA20-POLY1305:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256

[Responses: depends on my mood swings and other recent threads. ;-) ]

Hello EJ, thank you. The server is striking A+ now at the SSL Qualys test. :-)
