Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Perl *Net:SSLeay* now supports elliptic curve parameters Support for elliptic-curve parameters has been added to the Perl *Net:SSLeay* module, which contains bindings to the OpenSSL library. Namely, the `EC_KEY_new_by_curve_name()`, `EC_KEY_free*()`, `SSL_CTX_set_tmp_ecdh()`, and `OBJ_txt2nid()` subroutines have been ported from upstream. This is required for the support of the Elliptic Curve Diffie–Hellman Exchange (ECDHE) key exchange in the *IO::Socket::SSL* Perl module.

RHEL-7 version doesn't support ECDHE while it is being added to RHEL-6.8

This bug report will be used for enabling perl server to set elliptic curve parameters.

The wrong setting cipher list in perl-LDAP what is the root cause if the initial comment will be solved in bug report #1090966.

How to test:

Use perl-IO-Socket-SSL test described in bug #1078084.

Or just verify following 4 subroutines are defined in Net::SSLeay name space:
