The SunJSSE provider now supports the use of the EdDSA signature algorithm.  Specifically SunJSSE may use certificates containing EdDSA keys for server side and client side authentication and may use certificates signed with the EdDSA algorithm.  Additionally, EdDSA signatures are supported for TLS handshake messages that require digital signatures.
