      Description

        This ticket was opened a long time ago. Since then, Brainpool NamedCurve entries have been added, but there is still no support for Brainpool curves in the SunEC implementation. This ticket will be left open to track the remaining effort of implementing Brainpool in SunEC. The original description is below.

        ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
        OpenJDK doesn't have NamedCurves for the Brainpool elliptic curves[1].

        [1] http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5639


        JUSTIFICATION :
        Brainpool curves have some advantages over other curves (see the RFC) and are being used in many ePassport deployments in Europe.


        CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
        I've made a patch that works with JDK6 and JDK7. I've only done some basic manual testing of it because the test for sun.security.ec is currently broken in JDK7.
