Short description

In dnsdist, we can specify the TLS Ciphers to use when negotiating DoT/DoH connections. We should have a parameter to specify the TLS version as well


Some environments have strict security requirements, and the accepted TLS version is often one of those. There might be other reasons as well (library bugs that only manifest themselves in a certain version, a protocol fault that can be mitigated using a more recent TLS version ...


We can already specify the ciphers to use, as an option. It would be good to be able to specify the TLS version as well. Most other TLS-capable software (nginx, apache, mysql, ...) allow you to specify the TLS version and most (all?) current TLS libraries support setting the version.

I'd like to see this too (I was just looking in the doc on how to do this).
