I found this blog post useful for the upcoming VC2WG cryptosuite work:

Guidance for Choosing an Elliptic Curve Signature Algorithm in 2022

https://soatok.blog/2022/05/19/guidance-for-choosing-an-elliptic-curve-signature-algorithm-in-2022/

It suggests updates to the SafeCurves website:

https://safecurves.cr.yp.to/

... and does a fairly good job of boiling down the choices and
misinterpretations in the space.

Bonus points because it also included a link to this undiscovered gem:

https://www.howmanydayssinceajwtalgnonevuln.com/

Worth a read for those of us that are thinking about good cryptosuite choices
for VCs in 2022.
