           Summary: make the SSL cipher config in web.xml fail safe, i.e.
                    128+ bit strength by default
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: Nightly Build
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/guide/security/jsse/
                    JSSERefGuide.html#AppA
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Connector:Coyote
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: hauser@acm.org


When just taking the samples, even null ciphers are accepted!

How about 
1) defining a default cipher suite equivalent to the "MEDIUM:HIGH"
of openssl (http://www.openssl.org/docs/apps/ciphers.html#CIPHER_STRINGS) that
is also used by the apache httpd
(http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_ssl.html#sslciphersuite)

2) changing org.apache.tomcat.util.net.jsse.JSSESocketFactory.getEnabledCiphers
for the case that 
    requestedCiphers == null
not simply do a 
     enabledCiphers = supportedCiphers;
but use this fail-safe default cipher suite (based upon the above-referenced
JSSERefGuide.html)?

as a quick-fix, I suggest to add a well-visible warning to ssl-howto.xml
