Since OpenSSL supports a couple of more EC curves than currently selectable by XCA, I suggest adding them. I attach the respective patch.
Thanks for the patch.
If you send me your name and email address, I'll use them as <author> in the commit. Otherwise just a 'Thanks "dvo" for the patch'
You're welcome. My name is David von Oheimb, and my email address is David.von.Oheimb@siemens.com.
BTW, I just realized that for completeness the following ones can be added as well:
And I'm currently working on integrating Brainpool curves, too:
as defined in http://rt.openssl.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=2239&user=guest&pass=guest (and referred to in the OpenSSL extension request http://openssl.6102.n7.nabble.com/openssl-org-2359-PATCH-td41171.html).
Meanwhile I've tried out support for the Brainpool curves. For some detail see
and the attached minor XCA extension.
I suggest generally activating the references to the Brainpool curves as soon as OpenSSL 1.0.2., which includes them, is generally available.
I hope that both the patches proposed here will be part of the next release.
Fixed in XCA 1.0.0
