summary: Implement "diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256"
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
fixed-in: 2005-09-05 (0.59) (0.60)

Diffie-Hellman group exchange was implemented in PuTTY some years ago (it's been present since 0.52).

However, the final version of draft-ietf-secsh-dh-group-exchange added a new key exchange method relative to earlier drafts, using SHA-256 instead of SHA-1. We should implement that too.

(Update: Note that this support was liable to crash in snapshots before r6606, 2006-03-13.)

Audit trail for this wish.
