ECDHE_ECDSA cipher suite options are provided with newer OHS versions in order to work with ECC certificates. This document will outline requirements and successful implementation of ECC certificates with ECDHE_ECDSA ciphers. Note ECC certificates and ECDHE_ECDSA ciphers are only supported on OHS 184.108.40.206, 12.1.2, 12.1.3, 12.2.1 and higher where TLS 1.2 protocol is also supported.
- ECDHE_ECDSA ciphers require an ECC (ECDSA) certificate. They will not work with RSA certificates.
- ECDHE_RSA ciphers require an an RSA certificate. They will not work with ECC/ECDSA certificates.
