  3. Once you have enabled the ECDSA host-key algorithms, you can change the order of the list using the red up and down arrow buttons. Tectia Client reads the list in the top-down order.

  4. Click Apply.


To enable ECDSA host keys for X.509, repeat the process described above but select the algorithms named x509v3-ecdsa-sha2-*.
