Ciphers
-------
From the version 0.8, poezio offers the possibility to define your own set of
ciphers.
You can set this with the :term:`ciphers` option, the default for poezio being
``HIGH+kEDH:HIGH+kEECDH:HIGH:!PSK:!SRP:!3DES:!aNULL``.
You can check what ciphers are enabled by that list by running the command
``openssl ciphers -v 'cipher list'``. The default list prioritizes `Forward Secrecy`_
and does not have any cipher suite providing less than 128 bits of security.
You should change this if you either cannot connect to your server (but in this
case, you should notify the administrator that his XMPP server configuration
is probably not great), or if you want to be even more restrictive (only allowing
256 bits of security *and* forward secrecy, for example).
