There was a "chat" with Mr. Z on a website recently [no URL, but I found
it through /. and could find it again if pressed]. People sent email and
One questioner brought up GnuPG and he dissed it. Saying that the
modular design [plugable algorithms] was a weakness not shared by PGP.
He also said blowfish sucked [twofish is much better], and ElGamal was
weak [DSS better].
Did anyone else see this? Comments?
Never draw fire; it irritates the people around you.=20
