have IV_CIPHER in 2.4

Reported by: Gert Döring Owned by: plai
Priority: minor Milestone: release 2.4.10
Component: Crypto Version: OpenVPN 2.4.9 (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


I think it would be a good thing for long-term compatibility reasons to backport the IV_CIPHER= infrastructure to 2.4

The capability to receive pushed ciphers is already there, but we cannot tell the server what we can handle - so moving to non-AES ciphers is some guesswork on the server side (OCC cipher + AES-128 + AES-256).
