Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Deprecated Functionality
Doc Text:
.`NSS` SEED ciphers have been deprecated The Mozilla Network Security Services (`NSS`) library will not support TLS cipher suites that use a SEED cipher in a future release. For deployments that rely on SEED ciphers, Red Hat recommends enabling support for other cipher suites. This way, you ensure smooth transitions when NSS will remove support for them. Note that the SEED ciphers are already disabled by default in RHEL.
