Hi, I'm trying to use your library (edtftp-j-pro version 5.2.2) with ssh-ed25519 keys but the following error occurs:


DEBUG [SSHFTPClient] 27 giu 2017 14:26:06.513 : Created SFTP client.

giu 27, 2017 2:26:06 PM com.anritsu.ndaf.tools.core.output.ftp.FTPManager openConnection

INFO: Opening FTP connection to host: ...

DEBUG [SSHFTPValidator] 27 giu 2017 14:26:06.524 : Loading known hosts file

WARN [AbstractKnownHostsKeyVerification] 27 giu 2017 14:26:06.528 : Failed to read key for host '': ssh-ed25519 is not supported


at the end the following exception is thrown:

com.enterprisedt.net.ftp.ssh.SSHFTPKeyException: The host signature is invalid or the host key was not accepted!


Can you please confirm that ssh-ed25519 signature scheme is not currently supported? Is there any chance that it will be supported in new versions?  Thanks, BR

It's not supported right now but if and when it gets more popular we'll end up supporting it.
