Result negativ Irresponsible selection of encryption algorithms
Description Your web server/website is configured so that the encryption algorithms of the website visitor are preferred to those of your web server. Server should not leave the choice of encryption algorithms to your customers, but actively select strong connections.
Background Usually your server determines the encryption algorithms of the connection, not the other way around. Similar to the real world, you have house rules on your server - you define the rules, the guest has to follow them. You should not leave to chance whether your connections are secure.
Consequence You are leaving it to the visitor of your website to decide how securely you communicate.
Solution/Tips If "irresponsible selection of encryption algorithms" has been reported, configure your web server so that your web server determines the encryption algorithms for communication between your web page and the visitor's web browser.
