In Brazil will use probably the Brainpool curves too, for example to a 
CA root the curve "brainpoolp512r1"  OID sets to "1 3 36 3 3 2 8 1 1 
13". By the way, the Brainpool it is *not* supported yet in the OpenSSL 
suite v.1.0.1x, but just in the new release 1.0.2 will be supported, we 
can found it on the openssl project FTP site...
