OpenSSH introduces gro.h1576349471ssbil1576349471@652a1576349471hs-911576349471552ev1576349471ruc1576349471 key exchange !

A while back, I introduced a new key exchange mechanism, “ gro.h1576349471ssbil1576349471@652a1576349471hs-911576349471552ev1576349471ruc1576349471” in our code base. The reasons were explained txt.g1576349471ro.hs1576349471sbil@1576349471652ah1576349471s-915157634947152evr1576349471uc1576349471" 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.h1576349471ssbil1576349471@652a1576349471hs-911576349471552ev1576349471ruc1576349471 the default key exchange !
