comment Would usage of jCryption 3.0 + SSL have mitigated the Heartbleed vulnerability?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about the security of a system combining SSL and jCryption, not the cryptography involved - it's probably a better fit for security.stackexchange.com.

Uppercase CTR/CBC so they're more familiar
