I have some problems with enabling SSLv3 in my Nginx Ingress used as a Minikube addon. I have read in docs how to do it. It should be as simple as adding single map. Unfortunately I haven't had much success with it. It added this map in both namespaces - kube-system and the second one in which ingress is created.

kind: ConfigMap
apiVersion: v1
  name: nginx-config
  ssl-protocols: "SSLv2 SSLv3 TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2 TLSv1.3"

I did it separately and even forced nginx-ingress-controller but nothing happened. I have also found out about nginx-load-balancer-conf ConfigMap in kube-system namespace and added the same entries there too, but it didn't help either.

ssl-protocols seems to be one of few properties which can be defined in ConfigMap but no by annotations.

So my question is: Am I making some kind of stupid mistake or Minikube requires some different configuration?

I'm checking result of my actions by testssl.sh.

@Update I have listed my ingress controller config and there is my list of enabled ssl-protocols containing all I lisited, so I guess config is read, but not used. I have also read the logs but there is no errors there suggesting that for some reason SSLv3 cannot be used.

user@server:~$ kubectl exec -it -n kube-system nginx-ingress-controller-658b646bc5-4h562 cat /etc/nginx/nginx.conf | grep ssl
            is_ssl_passthrough_enabled = false,
        listen_ports = { ssl_proxy = "442", https = "443" },
    ssl_protocols SSLv2 SSLv3 TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2 TLSv1.3;
