I use a value of 42 for Blowfish with 160 bit; OpenPGP only defines Blowfish
with 128 bit key. I asked Lutz Donnerhacke, wether it is possible to add
a new constant for this, but he said no.
So what can I do? Use a value from 100-110 which are reserved for
experimental algorithms or just continue with 42?
Any opinions wether the way PGP modifies CFB mode really enhances security?
I couldn't find any positive answer to this in literature.
