Task #5033

Signature algorithm requirement change

Estimated time:


Previously, NDN Packet Format specification requires all implementations to support RSA signing.
Given the trend in crypto research, we should instead require all implementations to support ECDSA P-256 curve, while making RSA support optional.

This issue involves spec updates only. No code changes are necessary.

I will no longer work on this issue due to disagreements with code reviewers.
