> What's the difference between `|--personal-cipher-preferences' and
The former is your preferences for the traffic you generate. The latter
is your advertised list of preferences that are affixed to new
certificates you generate.
E.g.: if you have p-c-p of CAMELLIA256, TWOFISH, AES256, you will use
Camellia if your recipient supports it, Twofish if your recipient
supports it but not Camellia, AES256 if your recipient supports it but
neither Camellia nor Twofish, and if your recipient supports none of
them you'll use 3DES (which all recipients support).
If your d-p-l reads AES256, CAMELLIA256, TWOFISH, then any new
certificate you generate will have a note on it telling people "I can
read traffic encrypted with any of those algorithms."
99% of users will never have any need to use these options.
