@tylerl ain't encryption all about making all cleartexts equally probable?

But doesn't any kind of encryption provide no more secrecy than the secrecy of the key?

comment SSH key-type, rsa, dsa, ecdsa, are there easy answers for which to choose when?
ECDSA has the same weakness as DSA in this respect. And in OpenSSH it's doubly fishy because OpenSSH only implements NIST curves that are suspected to be backdoored by the NSA. More info here: security.stackexchange.com/a/46781/15087
