On openssl.

I'm not sure it's supported in nginx in that particular version as:

Changes with nginx 1.1.13 16 Jan 2012

*) Feature: the "TLSv1.1" and "TLSv1.2" parameters of the
"ssl_protocols" directive.

But is there a reason you can't compile a newer nginx/openssl and use that instead of the 10 year old Debian package?

You can compile/link nginx with openssl statically so it doesn't affect the system package and dependencies in any way:

1. download and extract https://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.1.1g.tar.gz
2. download and extract http://nginx.org/download/nginx-1.18.0.tar.gz
3. configure the nginx with: ./configure --with-openssl=path/extracted/openssl-1.1.1g --with-openssl-opt=enable-weak-ssl-ciphers
(obviously add other configure options like --prefix --with-http_ssl_module --with-http_v2_module etc .. you can check the current configuration with 'nginx -V')
4. make

And now you have a nginx binary with statically linked openssl 1.1.1 which has also tls 1.3 support.
