New ciphers ?

Post by yisigej » Sat Aug 28, 2021 1:04 am

Hello, is it possible to add OpenVPN supports GOST encryption algorithms? Like streebog , kuzneychik etc. It would be cool, by adding this the FSB could label OpenVPN as a software certified by the Russian government and no longer being viewed negatively by the russian gov. If I remember correctly, OpenSSL supports some GOST standards.

OpenSSL out of the box does NOT support GOST standard as far as I know. You need a OpenSSL engine for that. But algorithm that can be used in AEAD mode or CBC mode or hashes should work if the underlying OpenSSL library supports them.
