      Description

      In the "Standard Algorithm Names", we have "TLSv1.2" SSLContext algorithm as:

          TLSv1.2 Supports RFC 5246: TLS version 1.2 ;
                  may support other versions

      In the "Oracle Providers" documentation, we list the supported algorithms of SSLContext:
          SSLContext: SSLv3, TLSv1, TLSv1.1, TLSv1.2

      <The DTLS algorithms are missed in the doc I viewed right now>

      I think we can the supported SSL/TLS protocol versions for each SSLContext algorithm in the "Oracle Providers" documentation. For example:
                               | SSL/TLS protocol version
          SSLContext +-------------------------------------------------
          Algorhtm | SSLv2Hello | SSLv3 | TLSv1 | TLSv1.1 | TLSv1.2
          ----------------+-------------+-------+-------+---------+--------+
          SSLv3 | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes | Yes
          server mode | | | | |
          ----------------+-------------+-------+-------+---------+--------+
          SSLv3 | No | Yes | Yes | No | No
          client mode | | | | |
          ---------------+-------------+-------+-------+---------+--------+
          ...
          Note: The FIPS mode does not support SSL protocol versions of
                SSLv2Hello, SSLv3.
          Note: Weak SSL protocol versions may be restricted (See
                algorithm constraints documentation).
