I just tried using an IKE daemon and EC certificates. I used the secp256k1 curve for key generation. The daemon claims signature scheme ECDSA-256 not supported by private key Now I am wondering ...
So i read on wikipedia that digital signatures need padding (like PSS) and i know this is true for RSA. But know i ask myself does DSA also need padding?
In my hopes to use ssh-agent to generate a signature as password I implicitly assumed a deterministic signature. DSA is however supposed to take random value k for signing. However that randomness is ...
