Issue Description
JDK-8162362

Support for Customization of Default Enabled Cipher Suites via System Properties


The system property jdk.tls.client.cipherSuites can be used to customize the default enabled cipher suites for the client side of SSL/TLS connections. In a similar way, the system property jdk.tls.server.cipherSuites can be used for customization on the server side.

The system properties contain a comma-separated list of supported cipher suite names that specify the default enabled cipher suites. All other supported cipher suites are disabled for this default setting. Unrecognized or unsupported cipher suite names specified in properties are ignored. Explicitly setting enabled cipher suites will override the system properties.

Refer to the Java Cryptography Architecture Standard Algorithm Name Documentation for the standard JSSE cipher suite names, and the Java Cryptography Architecture Oracle Providers Documentation for the cipher suite names supported by the SunJSSE provider.

Note that the actual use of enabled cipher suites is restricted by algorithm constraints.

Note also that these system properties are currently supported by the JDK Reference Implementation. They are not guaranteed to be supported by other implementations.

Warning: These system properties can be used to configure weak cipher suites, or the configured cipher suites may become more weak over time. We do not recommend using the system properties unless you understand the security implications. Use them at your own risk.


JDK-8208350

Disabled All DES TLS Cipher Suites


DES-based TLS cipher suites are considered obsolete and should no longer be used. DES-based cipher suites have been deactivated by default in the SunJSSE implementation by adding the "DES" identifier to the jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms security property. These cipher suites can be reactivated by removing "DES" from the jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms security property in the java.security file or by dynamically calling the Security.setProperty() method. In both cases re-enabling DES must be followed by adding DES-based cipher suites to the enabled cipher suite list using the SSLSocket.setEnabledCipherSuites() or SSLEngine.setEnabledCipherSuites() methods.

Note that prior to this change, DES40_CBC (but not all DES) suites were disabled via the jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms security property.
