ED25519 & ECDSA key format support
It would be nice to be able to use key in ED25519 and ECDSA format on Azure when we want to connect to our GNU Linux on EC2.
Thanks for the valid suggestion. Your feedback is now open for the user community to upvote which allows us to effectively prioritize your request against our existing feature backlog and also gives us insight into the potential impact of implementing the suggested feature.
It is important to note that this issue also affects possible environments being run on Azure VMs. In our case, we have a self-managed Gitlab instance running on an Azure VM and cannot use this type of key, even though Gitlab recommends it.
