Already written them: putty@projects.tartarus.org
They expect to see a patch for the putty, but I do not want to learn ssh protocol.

Ok, I see. Thanks for trying.

There are many different parameters of elliptic curves.
Some appeared in the work in 1998.
There are parameters of elliptic curves generated not in the United States .
There are Russian version where in the formulas are slightly different coefficients and parameters of their curves.
All formulas and algorithms have long existed and analyzing it is described how to generate the most options for elliptic curves .
However, 25519 appeared not long ago, the formula calculations there several others, and I have not seen this work on cryptanalysis " works of art" . And almost all implementations in assembler.
So if anyone does not believe it is 25519 . This is my personal opinion.

Thanks for sharing your code. Could you contact PuTTY team and offer them help integrating this to PuTTY codebase?

We will takeover the implementation then. Thanks.

@prikryl
Putty has released full SSH2-ECDSA support in there current nightly snapshot. (https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html)

I can't find SSH2-ECDSA support in your current version or in your project roadmap.
Is there any Status to SSH2-ECDSA support?

thanks so far!

I'll look into it.
But note they deliberately did not include ECDSA into recent PuTTY 0.64 release. I'm sure there's a reason for that.

Yes, 0.65 are still in Test - ECDSA will be included in the next release

With PuTTY having this in snapshots quite a few months now and puttygen even having a .ppk export option in what I assume they figure would be the proper import model for an ECDSA key, is there any chance of this actually being implemented soon in WinSCP or is there still a wait for it to come out in a 'Stable' PuTTY release?

Will check it. But in general I prefer waiting for a stable release.

I don't blame you, but PuTTY is pretty slow for new releases (0.64 came two years after 0.63, and that one two years after 0.62, possible 0.65 might be soon-ish with the ECDSA though I guess), though worth noting by all intents even 0.64 despite being the latest "stable" release is still technically a beta :P

But yeah it'd be cool to see some support for it if possible, so far I've had no issues with them in PuTTY alone across multiple distros so at the very least puttygen is creating the general details properly, I'd assume getting the .ppk it generates working in WinSCP wouldn't be too horrible?

There's still no PuTTY release with ECDSA support.

That's really a pity. Fortunately FileZilla is supporting ECDSA so I had to switch to it. It is really a shame that several SSH/SFTP-app-providers wait that long implementing that badly needed (for instance for embedded devices) ECDSA support.

I've tested multiple Logins with a ECDSA-Key
All Logins works fine

thanks for Integration the new algo!
