In Options -> Authentication -> Manage Certificates -> Servers, which is
where SSL Server configurations are listed after they are optionally
created in the SSL Error dialog. In an SSL Server configuration, you can
set the protocol, though I am unsure why you would *not* want to use TLSv1,
since the SSLv2|3 protocols have known vulnerabilities.

Cipher suites are a bit harder to manage. Although one could use
QSslConfiguration::setCiphers(), this is not supported in QGIS's SSL server
configurations [0]. I believe you would need to do this via OpenSSL
configuration.
