Work on EC is going on, but I do not see this happening in the 2.3.x train - too much change. But it would be good to have :-) - so milestone 2.4 it is.

So, ECDH support has been merged and pushed just now

commit 609e8131427686adca9b4ed2db44db4aaa920a01
Author: Steffan Karger <steffan@…>

Add support for elliptic curve diffie-hellmann key exchange (ECDH)


This patch is based on Jan Just Keijser's patch from Feb 7, 2012.

Is that all that is needed to fulfill the wish to "support EC crypto", or do we need more? Reassigning to syzzer, he's "closer to the code" right now.
