Description (partial)

Some TLS/DTLS cipher suites and IKEv2/IPsec crypto algorithms are no longer allowed per the Cisco Product Security Baseline (PSB). AnyConnect sends a hard-coded list of cipher suites for VPN session negotiation.  Since there is no way for the end user to alter this list the weak cipher suites and algorithms must be removed.

For TLS and DTLS: 
For IKEv2/IPsec:
    Encryption algorithms: DES and 3DES
    Pseudo Random Function (PRF) algorithm: MD5
    Integrity algorithm: MD5
    Diffie-Hellman (DH) groups: 2, 5, 14, 24

Weak TLS/DTLS cipher suites and IKEv2/IPsec crypto algorithms are still supported on pre-4.9 AC packages.
