"keytool -genkeypair -keyalg EC" only supports -keysize now but multiple curves could have the same field size. It will be nice if the user can directly choose a curve name. We can support other named groups for other key algorithms later.
Fix request (11u) I would like to downport this for parity with 11.0.10-oracle. I had to resolve the patch: http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/jdk-updates-dev/2020-August/003723.html The downport by Oracle already has a CSR which I will reuse for this downport.
