Goal

 Starting with Fabric OS version 7.4, a new command secCryptoCfg was introduced to configure the ciphering for Brocade switches.

You can check the current ciphering by running:

Here we see that, for example, for the SSH cipher list we have CBC algorithms configured and for the SSH MACs list we have md5, sha1 and sha2.

To check the complete list of the available ciphering algorithms, please consult the Brocade CLI guide.
