Anyone using ed25519 yet? Any drawbacks?

  • Yes, much shorter :) Drawbacks? Yes, but that was a few years ago when it wasn't widely supported.

    It's all good now.

    Slightly different issue, but concern is the same

  • Yes
    Drawback: aws doesn't support it until now :)

    Been using it for a long time now, nice and short which is great.

  • Silly question but somehow real one - I may have misunderstood something.
    Why short would matter?
