enhancement request to implement "ecdh-sha2-nistp256", "ecdh-sha2-nistp384", "ecdh-sha2-nistp521" algorithms

We have customers who use the NIST-ciphers for key exchange. The IBM support-Team told us, that Sterling Secure Proxy does not currently support the NIST key Exchange algorithms. So, we are asking for it to be implemented as soon as possible.

    The NIST key Exchange algorithms are being planned to be implemented in one of the future Secure Proxy releases in 2019. This could be around mid of 2019 tentatively (not a commitment)
