enhancement request to implement "ecdh-sha2-nistp256", "ecdh-sha2-nistp384", "ecdh-sha2-nistp521" algorithms

We have customers who use the NIST-ciphers for key exchange. The IBM support-Team told us, that Sterling Secure Proxy does not currently support the NIST key Exchange algorithms. So, we are asking for it to be implemented as soon as possible.

What is your industry? Healthcare
How will this idea be used?

We need to be able to keep up with the security standards  our partners have implemented in their systems to exchange data with us.

    The requested NIST key algorithms i.e.  "ecdh-sha2-nistp256", "ecdh-sha2-nistp384", "ecdh-sha2-nistp521" are supported now for 6.0 stream and will be available this week on 3.4.3 series.
