Minimum TLS version
Allows you to easily specify a mimimum TLS/SSL version for node.js and io.js secureProtocol option.
All TLS/SSL versions older than the minimum will be disabled. The full list of TLS/SSL versions is below.

Usage

Just load the module:
var minimumTLSVersion = require('minimum-tls-version');
Then specify the minimum TLS version. For example:
minimumTLSVersion('tlsv11')
...would disable all TLS/SSL versions older than tlsv11 (eg, tlsv1, sslv3 and sslv2 are now disabled):
Whereas:
minimumTLSVersion('sslv3')
...would disable all TLS/SSL versions older than sslv3 (eg, sslv2 is disabled):
You'd normally use these values with https.createServers secureOptions option, eg, in plain node:
https.createServer({
	key: privateKey,
	cert: certificate,
	ca: certificateAuthority,
	secureOptions: minimumTLSVersion('tlsv11')
});
Or for express.js
var server = https.createServer({
	key: privateKey,
	cert: certificate,
	ca: certificateAuthority,
	secureOptions: minimumTLSVersion('tlsv11')
}, app);
