I am guessing you mean in the iplanet https web server? Just browse to the site and click the lock in the top right on the address bar (in ie8) and select view certificate. Go to the detaisl tab at the top and note down the signature algorithm, sha1RSA is the pretty good, this means sha1 as the cryptographic hashing algorithm and RSA as the encryption.
You can also use md5 as the hashing algorithm, but this has been phased out due to attacks, and sha256 which hasn't been widely adopted yet due to percieved lack of need.
On the Encryption front you can have RC4 3DES and AES, although the first two are old and I think have been phased out and the last isn't as common as RSA, in fact I can't recall the last time I saw it, but AES is still a valid and good choice for encryption.
Then onto the bit level, if you scroll down you will see Public Key, this is the public key for the site, the equivellent bit level. Usually 1024 or 2048 bits.
