First what version of gnupg do you use ? And with which OS ? There were some sparc related changes in 1.0.1 and later, so you might want to try gnupg-1.0.1e to see if that's faster. Also what algorithm did you use? If it's still too slow, we'll have to use the new functions that appeared in gmp-3.0. You can look at to see the speed comparisons of UltraSPARC versus other architectures with this version. Regards, gael
