ED25519 is a standard on SSH supported now for some years. When wanting to debug through SSH a container, it kinda bothers me to add a RSA key on my Github account just to debug something on Circleci...
Any news on this, it's been over a year
It seems like an elliptical curve key is available if an RSA key bothers you. Most modern browsers have moved to elliptical curve, as well. https://discuss.circleci.com/t/capistrano-and-ssh-host-authenticity/13586
ed25519 supported was added in OpenSSH version 6.5 (January 2014)
That is more than 5 years ago! All current CircleCI containers use versions of OpenSSH that support these keys.
I'd love to see support for this too. Use case: I want to write an integration test for a project that does `git` commands against different providers, and GitLab suggests using this key type.
It's not a hard blocker for me, but otoh, but seems like it wouldn't be crazy for you all to just update your validation logic in this box to allow this key type (unless there's unseen backend work)? Thanks!
Here are the GitLab docs: https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/ssh/#ed25519-ssh-keys
When I switched over to an RSA key, I think I also hit this issue: https://support.circleci.com/hc/en-us/articles/360021127693-How-to-generate-and-store-read-write-SSH-keys
Specifically, the MacOS command didn't "just work" ^
I'm surprised this isn't supported... every repo host already supports this, and it's bog standard at this point...
Any updates on this? It's been almost two years now :D
