* Returns: {DiffieHellmanGroup}

Creates a predefined `DiffieHellmanGroup` key exchange object. The
supported groups are: `'modp1'`, `'modp2'`, `'modp5'` (defined in
[RFC 2412][], but see [Caveats][]) and `'modp14'`, `'modp15'`,
`'modp16'`, `'modp17'`, `'modp18'` (defined in [RFC 3526][]). The
returned object mimics the interface of objects created by
supported groups are listed in the documentation for [`DiffieHellmanGroup`][].

The returned object mimics the interface of objects created by
[`crypto.createDiffieHellman()`][], but will not allow changing
the keys (with [`diffieHellman.setPublicKey()`][], for example). The
advantage of using this method is that the parties do not have to
