[openssl-users] is there an API to list all the TLS 1.3 cipher suite names?

History shows that protocols, algorithms, and implementations all have
flaws.  We assume that flaws will be discovered and design so that our
customers can work around them.

That doesn't sound like a 21st century user interface.

However, as I think about it, I remember that we already need a
softcoded list of algorithms, to avoid offering (e.g.) the PSK
algorithms.  It sounds like TLS 1.3 will need the same.  That's
unfortunate - I'd really like to treat the crypto subsystem as a black
box - but completely survivable.
