*Sendmail* now supports ECDHE This update adds the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral Keys (ECDHE) support to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 *Sendmail*. ECDHE is a variant of the Diffie-Hellman protocol that uses elliptic curve cryptography. It is an anonymous key agreement protocol that allows two parties to establish a shared secret over an insecure channel.

Comment 2 Jaroslav Škarvada 2014-07-30 08:30:12 EDT
I am not sure whether this will get in, please escalate it through the support channel to give it prio.
Comment 5 James Ralston 2016-09-21 13:28:29 EDT
We want this as well. I'll escalate through our support channels.

Backported feature

Unfortunately sendmail version in RHEL-7.3 is too old, thus the patch from the comment 0 is not enough and we need to backport the support. Full patch is attached.

It needs to be applied together with the patch from the comment 0.
