Support ecdsa public key under the SSH configuration
Can we support ecdsa public key under the SSH configuration when deploying Linux VM from Azure Portal or ARM template.
Currently the restriction is that only RSA keys are supported in the SSH configuration and it will give error if we use ecdsa public keys:
'message': 'The value of parameter linuxConfiguration.ssh.publicKeys.keyData is invalid.'
Is there a roadmap?

Also got 'The value of parameter linuxConfiguration.ssh.publicKeys.keyData is invalid.'.
Please support ecdsa public keys.

Seriously...why would this _not_ be supported? With ECDSA you can get the same level of security as RSA but with smaller keys. This would be an easy fix...
