The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Ed25519 and Ed448 public key algorithms for the Secure Shell (SSH)
   protocol'
  (draft-ietf-curdle-ssh-ed25519-ed448-11.txt) as Proposed Standard

This document is the product of the CURves, Deprecating and a Little more
Encryption Working Group.

The IESG contact persons are Benjamin Kaduk and Roman Danyliw.

Technical Summary

 This document describes the use of the Ed25519 and Ed448 digital
  signature algorithm in the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol.

Working Group Summary

This is an uncontroversial document to update the protocol to support
some more modern cryptographic algorithms.

Document Quality

There appear to be two independent implementations of at least
the ed25519 support; ed448 is quite similar so problems with the specification
are unlikely.

Personnel

Daniel Migault is the shepherd of the draft.  Benjamin Kaduk is
the responsible Area Director.
