OpenSSH 6.5 released (with lotsa D. J. Bernstein crypto)

ConstantineM (965345) writes "OpenSSH 6.5 has been released, which is dubbed a feature release. It's the first release with lots of D. J. Bernstein crypto in public domain (6.4 did not contain any DJB code whatsoever), from ChaCha20-Poly1305 stream cipher and MAC, to key exchange with Curve25519 (and a new private key format). The new key exchange is now the default (when supported by both sides), but the new transport cipher is an option. Additionally, the portable version has some extra code-hardening, and a switch to a ChaCha20-based arc4random() PRNG for platforms that don't provide their own."
