We would like to use openssh in fips mode. It looks it is not provided as a
configurable option through sshd_config, Are there plans to do incorporate
such change.

Do we have to change openssh code for now until the option is provided.
If sshd is operating in fipsmode, does it provide additional errors/audits
to indicate failures such as pair wise consistency failed during on of the
sshd internal key generation, etc.

Please suggest for any recomendations and suggestions or references  on how
to use openssh (sshd) in fips mode.

Thanks and Regards,
