Hi everybody,

This is also my fault, I worked a lot on server side last year and never
bothered checking if the server was accepting ecdsa keys.
Regarding the API, is there any advantage in adding an option specific
to ECDSA ?
I see there's already SSH_BIND_OPTIONS_HOSTKEY and if we follow
OpenSSH's semantics:
             Specifies a file containing a private host key used by
SSH.  The default is
             /etc/ssh/ssh_host_key for protocol version 1, and
             /etc/ssh/ssh_host_ecdsa_key and /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
for protocol version
             2.  Note that sshd(8) will refuse to use a file if it is
             ble.  It is possible to have multiple host key files. 
``rsa1'' keys are used
             for version 1 and ``dsa'', ``ecdsa'' or ``rsa'' are used
for version 2 of the
             SSH protocol.
This option should also work with ecdsa, is standard (maps to an openssh
settings) and doesn't require the caller to know the type of key beforehand.
