OPENSSH - List supported Ciphers and Algorithms

We need this list because sometimes our Vulnerabiliy Scanning software
points out that some old ciphers are WEAK.

From the man pages of SSH:

 -Q cipher | cipher-auth | mac | kex | key
             Queries ssh for the algorithms supported for the specified version 2.  The available features are: cipher (supported sym‐
             metric ciphers), cipher-auth (supported symmetric ciphers that support authenticated encryption), mac (supported message
             integrity codes), kex (key exchange algorithms), key (key types).
