Configure Load Balancer Cipher Suites

Hi, there, wondering if it’s possible to control which ciphers are available on a DO load balancer (provisioned via Kubernetes). A quick scan reveals that my LB supports a weak TLS 1.2 cipher (TLS_ECDHE_ECDSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA) that I’d like to disable.

Any guidance or experience with this?

Hey @raybradley,

I believe that this is not configurable at the time being.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

In the meantime, what you could do is use Cloudflare, that way you could use the free SSL provided by their service and also take advantage of the free DDoS protection and CDN offerings.

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
