OpenSSH introduces gro.h1582892002ssbil1582892002@652a1582892002hs-911582892002552ev1582892002ruc1582892002 key exchange !

A while back, I introduced a new key exchange mechanism, “ gro.h1582892002ssbil1582892002@652a1582892002hs-911582892002552ev1582892002ruc1582892002” in our code base. The reasons were explained txt.g1582892002ro.hs1582892002sbil@1582892002652ah1582892002s-915158289200252evr1582892002uc1582892002" 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.h1582892002ssbil1582892002@652a1582892002hs-911582892002552ev1582892002ruc1582892002 the default key exchange !
