           Summary: Misleading documentation regarding "strong" encryption
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.0-HEAD
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/ssl/ssl_howto.html#
                    onlystrong
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: docs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: florent.daigniere@trustmatta.com


The SSL howtos are misleading users into configuring mod_ssl using the
following directives:

SSLProtocol all
SSLCipherSuite HIGH:MEDIUM

Which is plain wrong for two reasons:
- it allows ssl2
- it enables ADH ciphers

The default configuration is more secure than this one!

While strictly speaking, it does what it says it does : "accepts strong
encryption only", end users also care about authentication.
