In libgcrypt before 1.7.7, an attacker who learns the EdDSA session key (from
side-channel observation during the signing process) can easily recover the
long-term secret key. 1.7.7 makes a cipher/ecc-eddsa.c change to store this
session key in secure memory, to ensure that constant-time point operations are
used in the MPI library.

+Subject: [PATCH] ecc: Store EdDSA session key in secure memory.
+
+* cipher/ecc-eddsa.c (_gcry_ecc_eddsa_sign): use mpi_snew to allocate
+session key.
+--
+
+An attacker who learns the EdDSA session key from side-channel
+observation during the signing process, can easily revover the long-
+term secret key. Storing the session key in secure memory ensures that
+constant time point operations are used in the MPI library.
