Package: strongswan
Version: 5.5.3-2
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

On a fresh installation of Debian testing/sid with strongswan 5.5.3-2,
all connections which are not configured to use IKEv1 fail with the
following error message:

initiating IKE_SA example[6] to x.x.x.x
configured DH group CURVE_25519 not supported
tried to checkin and delete nonexisting IKE_SA
establishing connection 'example' failed

This can be reproduced with the following connection in ipsec.conf:

conn example

(No server at the right IP is required as the error happens before a
connection is attempted.)

The error can be avoided by installing libstrongswan-extra-plugins.
Presumably either strongswan should recommend
libstrongswan-extra-plugins or avoid requiring CURVE_25519 by default.
