The Cipher display enhancement delivery by via PTFs - RO97239 and RO97240 is limited to connection lists Displayed from the S   - SSL/TLS Summary.

Could this be enhanced to also display the Cipher column from connections Lists reached from the other options on /SEC. Namely


A - AT-TLS Summary
F - FTP Summary
T - Telnet Summary


This would improve product consistency.


Also the use of TLS_NULL_WITH_NULL_NULL  when the Cipher is unknown or for sessions not using security is confusing - could this be change to something like Unknown or Indeterminate or even left blank rather than TLS_NULL_WITH_NULL_NULL   which is too similar to real ciphers such as TLS_RSA_WITH_NULL_SHA.

This change was rolled into the z Encryption Readiness Technology support PTFs SO00328,SO00329,SO00330 (also available in the NetMaster 12.2 INC03 PAX).
