NetScaler Cipher Lists - 2016 Edition with ECC/ECDSA

The new NetScaler 11.1 Release (starting with Build 47.14) brings Support for ECC/ECDSA Ciphers, unfortunately only on MPX Appliances with a N3 SSL Accelerator Chip for now.

Next on my Wish List would be ECC/ECDSA Support on VPX/CPX, OCSP Stapling and ChaCha20-Poly1305 Support.

The new updated Cipher Lists are grouped into a Modern and a Intermediate Cipher List Group based on the Recommendations from the Mozilla Wiki. If you want to use the Intermediate Cipher List don't forget to create a 2048bit DH Parameter and bind it to your vServer (or your SSL Profile).

  • Mozilla Modern:
Oldest Supported Clients: Firefox 27, Chrome 30, IE 11 on Windows 7, Edge, Opera 17, Safari 9, Android 5.0, Java 8
TLS Versions: TLS1.2 only

  • Mozilla Intermediate:
Oldest Supported Clients: Firefox 1, Chrome 1, IE 7, Opera 5, Safari 1, Windows XP IE8, Android 2.3, Java 7
TLS Versions: TLS1.0, TLS1.1 TLS1.2
