Technical Summary This document describes algorithms based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) for use within the Secure Shell (SSH) transport protocol. In particular, it specifies: Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) key agreement, Elliptic Curve Menezes-Qu-Vanstone (ECMQV) key agreement and Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) for use in the SSH Transport Layer protocol. Working Group Summary This document is the result an individual submission by members of the community interested in seeing support for use of ECC algorithms in the SSH protocol. While there is no active working group behind this work, it was extensively reviewed and discussed on the ietf-ssh mailing list, which was the home of the Secure Shell Working Group before that group concluded and still counts many of the participants of that working group among its members. Document Quality While there are no existing implementations of this protocol, there has been indication of interest from SSH implementors. Personnel The document shepherd for this document is Jeffrey Hutzelman The responsible Area Director is Tim Polk. RFC Editor Note Section 12.1 Please remove the URL from the reference [FIPS-180-3].
