            Bug ID: 25839
           Summary: Curve25519 Named Curve
           Product: Web Cryptography
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Cryptography API Document
          Assignee: sleevi@google.com

Thanks to some of its nice security properties, curve25519 has become
incredibly popular as the curve of choice for new projects[1]. As such, it
would be incredibly nice for it to be included in the NamedCurve dictionary.

[1] See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curve25519#Notable_uses and
http://ianix.com/pub/curve25519-deployment.html for some massive lists.
Specifically, I'm filing on behalf of Open Whisper Systems and TextSecure.
