Talk:Diffie-Hellman parameters

It looks like OpenSSL uses PEM encodings by default. For example:

$ grep -R "BEGIN DH PARAMETERS" *
apps/dh1024.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
apps/dh512.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
apps/dh2048.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
apps/dh4096.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
crypto/dh/dh1024.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
crypto/dh/dh512.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
crypto/dh/dh2048.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
crypto/dh/dh2048.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
crypto/dh/dh192.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
crypto/dh/dh4096.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
demos/bio/server.pem:-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----
doc/apps/dhparam.pod: -----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----

And I could not find any pre-encoded binary representations like in the example on this page.

Should we add a sampling of IETF and NIST (2048, 3072, 4096) that are suitable for copy/paste into a program?
