That is plain nonsense.  It is not yet possible to compute collisions,
let a anone a second preimage.

These are not defined by OpenPGP and thus I strongly advise against its
use.  SHA-1 is an integral part of OpenPGP; it doesn't help if you come
up with a different way of computing a fingerprint.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
