if client advertised curves, and the curves include stuff besides prime256v1 I *expect* the other stuff to be negotiated, unless it's smaller than 256 bits, but it's not what I was talking about I'm talking only about the case of "no curves advertised at all" i.e. supported_groups extension missing completely from client hello -- Regards, Hubert Kario Senior Quality Engineer, QE BaseOS Security team Web: www.cz.redhat.com Red Hat Czech s.r.o., Purkyňova 99/71, 612 45, Brno, Czech Republic
