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 was initially created as a clone of Bug #1044401 +++
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.
