Description of problem:
When the system is put in fips mode, `ssh -Q key` and `ssh -G example.com | grep key` list algorithms that use the DSS authentication method.
Because DSS in SSH can use only 1024 bit keys, that are considered too weak now, and they are not supported, but are still listed by the above commands
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh -Q key | grep dss
2. ssh -G example.com | grep dss
no dss types listed
We should not use ed25519 keys either in FIPS, which is also listed there. After applying the patch, the output in FIPS looks this:
# ssh -Q key
# ssh -G example.com | grep dss
I have got the patch ready to fix it in 7.4 or later.
no ... we can not remove them from the output of the -Q option, because the keys are technically enabled, but just not used by default.
The -G should certainly not list them.
