Coming back to the message of Tobias, it looks* like even in 14 the Brainpool curves have not landed for JSSE, are there any plans for adding this? can you maybe share your incomplete patch, Tobias?

* i don’t see them in ssl/NamesGroups: http://hg.openjdk.java.net/jdk/jdk/file/tip/src/java.base/share/classes/sun/security/ssl/NamedGroup.java

Hi Valerie and Bernd,
Valerie is right, I tested my JTREG Tests against SoftHSM2 in March:
I don't think there are more PKCS#11 related issues, as SunEC is not a PKCS#11 implementation. There are only shared tests.

The JTREG known answer tests use the X9.62 key format as they are used in certificates as well. I assume, brainpool public keys would work in certificates as well.

I actually implemented the support for brainpool curves in TLS as well, but I had no time to provide proper JTREG tests for that, and therefore no patch yet.

Regards, Tobias
