When using the Chrome web browser you may see a warning stating that your SSL is using an obsolete cipher:
Your connection to <domain> is encrypted using an obsolete cipher suite.
The message is simply a warning from Chrome about the cipher the server is using to encode the connection. You may notice that many large corporate sites also display this warning due to an old cipher method the server is using.
While we understand what Google is trying to accomplish by presenting these warnings, we have to keep the older ciphers on the server to maintain compatibility with older browsers. Removing the ciphers prevents a site from being visited with an older browser.
