Technical Summary This document specifies additions and amendments to SSH GSS-API Methods [RFC4462]. It defines a new key exchange method that uses SHA-2 for integrity and deprecates weak DH groups. The purpose of this specification is to modernize the cryptographic primitives used by GSS Key Exchanges. Working Group Summary No serious issues were raised with this document, but it received little feedback overall. Document Quality The only currently know implementation are patches for OpenSSH in Fedora: https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/openssh/blob/master/f/openssh-7.5p1-gssapi-kex-with-ec.patch Personnel Daniel Migault is the document shepherd. Benjamin Kaduk is the responsible Area Director.
RFC Editor Note In Section 5.1, sixth paragraph, please remove "according to Section 4 of [RFC5656]" from the first sentence; that reference is incorrect and RFC 7546 is (correctly) cited three paragraphs earlier.
