Global Mailbox backend file replication SSH settings (ciphers, hmacs, group exchanges) currently are not configurable, even in 6.1

QUALYS scans are revealing that the out-of-box settings utilized CBC ciphers and SHA1 group-exchanges. These should be configurable settings for the TCP 33001 port to secure with CTR and/or GCM ciphers as well as SHA2/256 group exchanges.

How will this idea be used?

Being able to set these values to higher ciphers, macs and group exchanges will remediate these security findings.
