Hello !

I have created two secret keys using 1024 ElG/DSA as suggested by using 

Now I want to encrypt a file using one of the secret keys. To that end I 

gpg -r NameOfKey1 --encrypt filename

This works fine.

Then I try 

gpg -r NameOfKey2 --encrypt filename

This always gives the message:  
gpg: Diese Verschlüsselungsmethode taugt nicht mehr viel; verwenden Sie 
eine stärker stan-dardisierte Methode! 
(translation: This Encryption Method ist not of great use any more ! Use 
a stronger standardized Method !

What does This mean ????????

Thank you very much for any help !
