I am testing a website is SSL labs and received below message.

"This server does not support Authenticated encryption (AEAD) cipher suites. Grade capped to B."


I am trying to enable AEAD ciphers on the server and all I can see is *_ECDHE_ECDSA_*_GCM_* ciphers or *_DHE_RSA_*_GCM_* ciphers.

I do not see any *_ECDHE_RSA_*_GCM_* ciphers.

 

ECDSA ciphers need ECDSA certificate and DHE ciphers are weak.

 

Is there a way around to enable AEAD ciphers other than getting the ECDSA certificate?
