>             Project: MINA SSHD
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.11.0
>            Reporter: Pasi Eronen

> The shared secret returned by KeyAgreement.generateSecret() is a byte array, which can
(by chance, roughly 1 out of 256 times) begin with zero byte. In SSH, the shared secret is
an integer, so we need to strip the leading zero(es).
> Some JCE providers might strip leading zeroes, though. SunJCE used to do this in Java
6, I think, but not anymore in Java 7 -- and there was an almost identical bug (handshake
fails 1 out of 256 times) in Java's SSL/TLS implementation in early Java 7 versions (see http://bugs.java.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=8014618).
> How to reproduce with OpenSSH client (assuming Mina SSH server running in port 9922):
> for x in {1..500}; do sshpass -p wrong ssh -p9922 -oKexAlgorithms=diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1
someuser@localhost; done 
> for x in {1..500}; do sshpass -p wrong ssh -p9922 -oKexAlgorithms=ecdh-sha2-nistp256
someuser@localhost; done
