[RHEL8.0] CA  ECC installation is also failing on Safenet LunaSA HSM machine. also same scenario is working fine for CA RSA installation on Safenet LunaSA HSM.
Also tested with endi's copr bits as well it's not working.

Apparently there is a missing functionality in JSS:

Comment 11 Endi Sukma Dewata 2020-02-10 05:19:56 UTC
The ECC installation should be working in PKI 10.8 (RHEL 8.2).

Comment 13 shalini 2020-02-20 09:41:21 UTC
This bugzilla has been tested on following build (RHEL8.2)


ECC installation is successful. Attached is the ca.cfg file used for ECC CA installation.
ECC installation also works in pipeline.
