What is sad is that OpenSSL disabled the EXPORT1024 ciphersuites in 2006. If you don't know what these are, in year 1999 the US government raised the limit to 56-bit encryption and 1024-bit RSA. They were described in https://tools.ietf.org/html/dr... . And for the record it was in year 2000 that the restrictions was removed for "retail" software.

If all else fails, lower your standards.
