The 'net != the web. :)

OpenSSL and NSS both support ECDSA pairs.

Postfix has included support for ecdsa key/cert pairs for some time now,
in parallel with rsa and dsa.  I'm sure it is not alone.

MTAs and MUAs, at least, would have something with which to communicate.

I expect, as DANE takes off, ecc will get more use.
