This is a good idea, JSON is easier to work with than the previous custom k=v format.

What do you think about using Base64 instead of hex for the binary parts?

I’m unsure about specifying the pattern/cipher/hash/curve separately for both sides of the handshake, it seems like that’s only useful for failure mode testing and would be better suited in local unit tests for the implementation.
