Intended result: To have identical cipher support in IIS 8.5 (new server), as I have support for in Apache 2.4 (the server I want to copy the supported ciphers from).

ssllabs.com info : Apache 2.4 gives A+ rating with Robust FS support and support for Android 2.x. IIS 8.5, playing around, I can get either an A rating with 'modern browser' FS, or an A+ rating with no Android 2.x support.

Apache 2.4 conf params related to ciphers:

```
SSLProtocol -all -SSLv3 +TLSv1 +TLSv1.1 +TLSv1.2
SSLCipherSuite -LOW:AESGCM:AES:!kRSA:!kPSK:!aNULL:!eNULL:!EXPORT:!DES:!RC4:!MD5:!PSK:!aECDH:!ADH
SSLStrictSNIVHostCheck Off
SSLCompression off
SSLOptions +FakeBasicAuth +ExportCertData +StrictRequire
SSLHonorCipherOrder on
```

What is the equivalent cipher list for IIS 8.5 on Windows Server 2012r2, to the following Apache2.4 (linux) suite. The available cipher names from Windows are after the cipher list shown below from Apache2.

`-`

instead of`_`

) or a pain such as trailing`P521`

or inline block types (`CBC`

`CBC_SHA`

etc ) which make this not a simple automatic seek and find. Several of the protocols don't match, however I know the apache2 ones definitely handshake with every client (aside from IE on XP, and Java6) according to ssllabs.com. Since each client is using the ciphers available to the system, and iis also uses these ciphers, then it can be concluded there is a viable match even when it isn't obvious. Frustrated as the variation makes this confusing and painful. – Kraang Prime Feb 25 '16 at 14:20needs testing– Alex H Feb 25 '16 at 14:35missinglikely due to being under a different name, and not actually missing. I tried playing around with nartac.com/Products/IISCrypto/Download and while dated, it is fairly decent. Doesn't update the cipher order policy properly tho, or give any further clarity into cipher matching to openssl. – Kraang Prime Feb 25 '16 at 14:362more comments
