DSA = DSS?
Fri, 11 Aug 2000 01:59:40 -0400
As far as I can tell from reading docs and FAQs DSA (as it appears in
GnuPG) is the same as DSS under PGP (as it appears in PGP 5/6), yes?
IOW, in all the reading I've done it's implicit/tacit that GnuPG will
inter-operate with PGP, with the exception of RSA! So, I take that to
mean that GnuPG's -- Pubkey: ELG-E, DSA, ELG -- DSA and ElGamal default
key pair option is therefore synonymous with PGP's DSS.
Straighten me out, please.
