CVS commit: src/etc/rc.d

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   riastradh
Date:           Mon Jun  5 11:59:13 UTC 2023

Modified Files:
        src/etc/rc.d: sshd

Log Message:
/etc/rc.d/sshd: Use default curve for ECDSA keygen, not NIST P-521.

The default is NIST P-256, which:

(a) has plenty of cryptanalytic security,
(b) performs better on essentially all platforms (smaller enough that
    even the advantage of the Mersenne prime structure of P-521 can't
    compete), and
(c) likely gets more scrutiny on implementations than P-521 since it's
    more widespread.
