[Opendnssec-user] ECC algo signing in ods?

IANA lists "DNS Security Algorithm Numbers"



	"All algorithm numbers in this registry may be used in CERT RRs. Zone
	 signing (DNSSEC) and transaction security mechanisms (SIG(0) and TSIG)
	 make use of particular subsets of these algorithms. Only algorithms
	 usable for zone signing may appear in DNSKEY, RRSIG, and DS RRs.
	 Only those usable for SIG(0) and TSIG may appear in SIG and KEY RRs."

The Zone-Signing enable algos listed are

	3 	DSA/SHA1
	5 	RSA/SHA-1
	8 	RSA/SHA-256
	10 	RSA/SHA-512
	12 	GOST R 34.10-2001
	13 	ECDSA Curve P-256 with SHA-256
	14 	ECDSA Curve P-384 with SHA-384

I'm interested in use of the ECC algos, #13 & #14, for signing in ods

ods allows changing the algo


ods' defaults appear to be #8

	cat kasp.xml
		<!-- Parameters for KSK only -->
		    <Algorithm length="2048">8</Algorithm>

		<!-- Parameters for ZSK only -->
		    <Algorithm length="1024">8</Algorithm>
		    <!-- <ManualRollover/> -->

I found this thread

	[Opendnssec-develop] Adding ECC to ods-signer

		We would welcome this contribution.  If your time permits, I see
		no problem getting this into the next 2.1 release.
		When you have something to review or submit you can push your changes
		back to github and make a pull-request for it.

but lost any further comment.

I've built ods from latest git

    ./ods-enforcer -V
        opendnssec version 2.1.0-dev

checking git log, I've missed any reference to inclusion of ECC algo signing support.

What's the status of ECC support in current/latest ods?
