Actually one of the reasons we avoided OAEP in the past were rumors of
patent claims.  I can't remember the details.

We now have ECDSA in Libcrypt because it seems to be an innocent
implementaion.  However, out of patent fears Redhat does not include the
ECDSA in there distribution.

Definitely something we should investigate.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
