Technical Summary This document describes the use of the Ed25519 and Ed448 digital signature algorithm in the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol. Working Group Summary This is an uncontroversial document to update the protocol to support some more modern cryptographic algorithms. Document Quality There appear to be two independent implementations of at least the ed25519 support; ed448 is quite similar so problems with the specification are unlikely. Personnel Daniel Migault is the shepherd of the draft. Benjamin Kaduk is the responsible Area Director.
