    I guess this might be fun for crypto geeks but I see little practical value. All of the ciphers in the SSL/TLS specification were carefully chosen by experts in the field for their strength. None of them are weak nor should they be avoided. (MD5 is one exception, but it's a hash function and not a cipher. However it has been broken both in theory and in practice and should really be purged from the specification).

    Seems interesting but I've no clue what this does. If there's someone who wouldn't mind explaining this in laymen terms, I'd appreciate it. Even if I don't use it, at least I'd learn a thing or 2...

    There must be a 100 page PDF document on how to use this tool.
