Subject Re: Cipher suite used in default Apache
Date Fri, 29 Oct 2010 19:26:22 GMT
Not that I have much say in the matter, being new here and all, but I
definitely like the idea.

I also had another one.  How opposed would anyone be, if "apache2ctl
fullstatus" gave a bit more of this relevant cipher info that I originally
inquired about?  Seems like a good place to stick it, since it wouldn't
require one to connect to oneself to see Apache2 / mod_ssl's status data.

Somewhere near "SSL/TLS Session Cache Status:" seems like a good place.
