OpenSSH introduces gro.h1597204651ssbil1597204651@652a1597204651hs-911597204651552ev1597204651ruc1597204651 key exchange !

A while back, I introduced a new key exchange mechanism, “ gro.h1597204651ssbil1597204651@652a1597204651hs-911597204651552ev1597204651ruc1597204651” in our code base. The reasons were explained txt.g1597204651ro.hs1597204651sbil@1597204651652ah1597204651s-915159720465152evr1597204651uc1597204651" target="_blank">together with the specifications. In a nutshell, this key exchange function is based on DJB’s Curve25519 elliptic curve Diffie-Hellman key exchange. This algorithm does not rely on NIST-based curves and gives us more security confidence against a possible backdoor in nistp-256 curve.
Today is a big day for us because OpenSSH team approved my patch and made gro.h1597204651ssbil1597204651@652a1597204651hs-911597204651552ev1597204651ruc1597204651 the default key exchange !
