  • DES or DES(56)
  • 3DES or DES(168)
  • AES(128)
  • AES or AES(256)
  • RC4(40)
  • RC4 or RC4(128)
  • RC2 or RC2(40)

You can use ALL keyword to indicate whole set of ciphers. To exclude certain cipher from the set use "-" sign. For instance, value of SslCipherList property "ALL-RC4" means that any cipher but RC4 can be used.

You can control performance-security trade-off using this property. To gain better performance you can use RC2 cipher. To achieve maximal traffic security you can use 3DES or AES ciphers.
