Description

Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 (RFC 2246) and 1.1 (RFC 4346) include cipher suites based on the DES (Data Encryption Standard) and IDEA (International Data Encryption Algorithm) algorithms. DES and IDEA algorithms are no longer recommended for general use in TLS, and have been removed from TLS version 1.2.
