Hello Team,

I have a web server that has been reported to have weak TLSv1 ciphers:
o      EXP-RC2-CBC-MD5 Kx=RSA(512) Au=RSA Enc=RC2-CBC(40) Mac=MD5 export
o      EXP-RC4-MD5 Kx=RSA(512) Au=RSA Enc=RC4(40) Mac=MD5 export
o      EXP1024-DES-CBC-SHA Kx=RSA(1024) Au=RSA Enc=DES-CBC(56) Mac=SHA1 export
o      EXP1024-RC4-SHA Kx=RSA(1024) Au=RSA Enc=RC4(56) Mac=SHA1 export

How can I disable this type of encryption?

Thank you.

Hello, I just posted something to similar question posted previously. Feel free to use links below in addition to link above. Also KB article below (245030) has some good support on how to change your cipher order to remove older ciphers and also add more secure ones in priority order. You may also consider adding ECDHE ciphers for Perfect Forward Secrecy (if your systems support it) on the very top, followed by RC4, AES, etc. Google has a good write-up on this as well. Make sure to remove older (weak) ciphers you seem to have listed like RC2, MD5, DES.

First, make sure to disable SSL v3 in addition to v2 protocols. Check out articles below that can help with steps needed to enable TLS 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 as well.

Mitigating SSL v3: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/3009008.aspx

Details for adding support for TLS 1.0/1.1/1.2 and cipher ordering: How to restrict the use of certain cryptographic algorithms and protocols in Schannel.dll: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/245030

Hope this helps.
