i'm a big advocate of open-standards, and it's only natural that i
jumpted on the RIJNDAEL bandwagon. i currently have the following two
lines in my ~/.gnupg/options :
however, RIJNDAEL is pretty new, and that standing, it has not
withstood the scrutiny for as long as something a little older like
CAST5 (which i've used previous of AES). then again, if it's good
enough for the NSA, it's good enough for me.
is my rationale correct? am i doing the right thing?
neat pick: PGP 7.0.3 says the cipher is AES-128. I thought i'm using
RIJNDAEL_256_ ... i read somewhere PGP 7.0.3 isn't RFC2440 compaint.
is this the reason?
also, what's the difference between RIJNDAEL256 , RIJNDAEL192, and
just plain RIJNDAEL ?
thank you for everyone's time.
