    SSH Server ECC keys


    I have generated ECC keys for client and server, and am able to test using openssl s_server and s_client, but am wanting to use as authentication with SSH server.
    Cipher : ECDH-ECDSA
    I want to use Ecliptical Curve Crytography(ECC) keys with ssh server.

    Is it possible to use EC PRIVATE KEY-.
    Can this be done, or am I stuck with RSA or DSA?

    AFAIK, only RSA and DSA keys are supported with openssh. If you can fine a SSH client and server that support ECC than you can use that version.
