[Ach] Adding more cipher suites

It is my opinion that we should also add AES-128 and AES-192 based cipher suites as well as SHA256 for all of these (SHA256 is perfectly fine as far as i can tell). This sould also result in better browser support and support for java. AES-128 and AES-192 as well as SHA256 can be considered in the “strong” category in my opinion. This also doesn’t limit administrators as much. I just reviewed the paper a bit and noticed that we’re far too conservative with the amount of suites we recommend.  (See: Table 1, Table 2 in the DRAFT)

There already has been discussion about adding AES128, but nobody acutally did. We should also speak about including SHA512 with some recommendations and configurations.

I’d like to hear your opinions on the matter.
