For others reference this is regarding CentOS 7.2 with FreeIPA 4.4.0

Directory server change suggested on the link are for an older version.
Minimum TLS support can be altered as follows:


dn: cn=encryption,cn=config

allowWeakCipher: off

cn: encryption

createTimestamp: 20161130110528Z

creatorsName: cn=server,cn=plugins,cn=config

modifiersName: cn=Directory Manager

modifyTimestamp: 20161213085006Z

nsSSLClientAuth: allowed

nsSSLSessionTimeout: 0

nsSSL3Ciphers: default

objectClass: top

objectClass: nsEncryptionConfig
sslVersionMin: TLS1.2

I'm still working on port 8443 (DogTag/PKI/Tomcat) - configuration in
/usr/share/pki/server/conf/server.xml seems to roughly match the linked
article however its all tokenized as shown below:

203            sslOptions="[TOMCAT_SSL_OPTIONS]"
204            ssl2Ciphers="[TOMCAT_SSL2_CIPHERS]"
205            ssl3Ciphers="[TOMCAT_SSL3_CIPHERS]"
206            tlsCiphers="[TOMCAT_TLS_CIPHERS]"
207            sslVersionRangeStream="[TOMCAT_SSL_VERSION_RANGE_STREAM]"
208            sslVersionRangeDatagram="[TOMCAT_SSL_VERSION_RANGE_DATAGRAM]"
209            sslRangeCiphers="[TOMCAT_SSL_RANGE_CIPHERS]"

I'll feed back if i work it out.
