Please update cipher and hash support

Hi.

SecureCRT is missing support for the following, please implement support as soon as possible.

GCM ciphers
ChaCha20 ciphers
ed25519 keys

If you need someone to test a beta product with these added I will be happy to do so.

Thank you.

Hi chrcoluk,

I have added this thread to the following feature requests in our product enhancement database:
  • Add support for OpenSSH ciphers, MACs etc. (AES-GCM, EtM Encrypt-then-MAC, UMAC-128)
  • Add support for ChaCha20/Poly1305 (chacha20 stream cipher and poly1305 MAC)
Should a future release of SecureCRT include either feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, contact support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Requests - Forum Thread #12209" in the subject line.


Regarding the latter one, ED25519 key support, this will be available as of version 8.0. I can make a pre-release build available to you, if desired, but the beta release installers will be available on our website and that release cycle is due to start next week (January 28 is the scheduled date).

Once available, this is the URL for the beta installers.

hi guys, still no news on these missing ciphers?

I think security enhancements should always be priority over other features like GUI etc.

Hi chrcoluk.

Thanks for checking in. We don't currently offer support
for those things. I have updated the entries that were
created for you in our feature request database with this
inquiry and forwarded it to the product manager for
SecureCRT. Feel free to check in from time to time for a
progress report.

Thank you.

JJH

Support for support for ChaCha20/Poly1305 (chacha20 stream cipher and poly1305 MAC) has been added to a pre-beta version of SecureCRT (and SecureFX). If you would be interested in trying it, please email me at Maureen.Jett@vandyke.com.
