I'll present you my problem... then I'll ask my question! :o)
I have to implement a cryptosystem for commercial use and, of course, I
would like to use algorithms that are free (if possible). This
cryptosystem MUST be PGP-based (I assume that it must be conform to RFC
2440 - OpenPGP .. Am I right ?)
My cryptosystem must exchange data with a public key/private key and sign
massages. That's all. I don't have to manage many users... just use public
key/private key and sign massages.
My question is: what algorithm should I use ???
Is Elgamal compatible with PGP??? If yes, how should I use it ? It's my
biggest problem cause I can sign with SHA-1 and MD5 hash algorithms without
Is there another assymetric (other then RSA) algo that is compatible with
I'll really appreciate if you can guide me with you knowledge or with a
document.... or anything...
Well, hope to hear from you soon....
