there is -Z parameter in ssh-keygen --help output, but no mention of
it in ssh-keygen's man-page. Any clue what values this parameter accept?

It is the "new-format ciphername", which can be used for RSA keys if the
new format file is being used, and is used for the elliptic curve keys,
if I'm reading things correctly. I guess that would mean that it accepts
things like "" and "aes256-ctr" (see the
table ciphers[] in cipher.c), though I don't know which ones make sense
to pass in there.

I guess we should ask the OpenBSD folks to document it, the -Z argument
was added to ssh-keygen.c in r1.237 back in December.


Thank you for description!
