The NIST curves aren't exactly trusted by security professionals. https://safecurves.cr.yp.to/
Every curve supported has to be explicitly acked by Fedora legal. The openssl-1.1.0 in rawhide adds support for the Curve25519
Is there any public explanation of this position? I would like to understand the thoughts and constraints.
I suggest you to contact Fedora legal for details.
Hi Mr. Jester this is not a new subject please take a look in this bug reports: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1067697 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1019390 https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1413618
we ask to enable prime192v1, secp224r1 and sect233k1 elliptic curves but [1] "I would view enabling EC curves smaller than 256 bits as a security regression. So I am wontfixing this bug. " So, for me, this was complicated, I need support of these elliptic curves, to work with some applications but fedora won't ship it, not for a legal reason but because is a "secure regression". Meanwhile I built and use my openssl-freeworld [2] I only have packages for Fedora <= F25 because I hadn't time, yet, to ported to F26+ and openssl-1.1, and for legal reasons I couldn't use copr. That is a question at least we may enable and build all elliptic curves on corp ?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 25. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '25'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora 25 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Some EC algorithms are still disabled to let's keep it open.
(In reply to Tomas Mraz from comment #1) > Every curve supported has to be explicitly acked by Fedora legal. > > The openssl-1.1.0 in rawhide adds support for the Curve25519 Really? Somehow openssl still (Fedora 28) does not seem to support Curve25519. Output of 'openssl ecparam -list_curves' does not show it. I doubt it is for legal reasons, as openssh does support it. 'ssh -Q key' clearly says so. So my guess is that support got added but not turned on. Or did I do something wrong?
openssl ecparam won't show it because the Curve25519 is special and not implemented within the normal ec framework. If you try openssl s_client -connect www.google.com:443 you will see that X25519 is used for the DH key exchange.
Ah, thanks a lot, so my mistake. Tried your command, works well. Still a bit confusing not to show it as supported curve, but I guess that needs to be fixed upstream. Thanks again.
I am going to close this bug as it makes no sense to keep a bug like this open forever. As legal issues are resolved over time we will add curves back as they are available upstream.
