Currently, Staticman uses RSA encryption. Nonetheless, it's reported that the old RSA encoding is insecure. I wonder if it's possible to provide support for elliptic curve encryption.

ED25519 SSH keys

Following best practices, you should always favor ED25519 SSH keys, since they are more secure and have better performance over the other types.

ED25519 SSH keys were introduced in OpenSSH 6.5, so any modern OS should include the option to create them. If for any reason your OS or the GitLab instance you interact with doesn’t support ED25519, you can fallback to RSA.
