Restrict Elliptic curves for SSL connection for Https/AS2 connectivity

Currently, there is no option to restrict or use only required Elliptic curves for the SSL connection for https/AS2 connectivity. 

For Example: Below are the Elliptic curves

secp192r1 – {1.2.840.10045.3.1.1} 

secp224r1 – {} 

secp256r1 – {1.2.840.10045.3.1.7}

secp384r1 – {}

secp521r1 – {}

Suppose if we need to use secp384r1 – {} and secp521r1 – {} only, there is no option to use these curves only. Its better to have option to restrict the curves so that old elliptic curves can be removed and use only latest elliptic curves. Thus, provide more security to the connections.

    Hi Manoj,

    secp384r1 and secp521r1 are the latest Elliptic curves which provide more security for the SSL connections than old curves. So, we want to use only these curves for the SSL connection and remove the other three curves.

    We have raised PMR TS012572702 and received response that SCBN doesn't have capability to configure only required Elliptic curves for the connection.
