RSA keys use the IDEA algorithm that is still patented in some countries=20
and is proprietary software. Consequently, GnuPG, which is part of the=20
OpenSource movement and follows its philosophy, does not include the=20
ability to generate RSA keys and will not do so until all patents have=20
expired and it ceases to be proprietary software. GPG contains the=20
ability to READ RSA keys, but not to generate them.
The IDEA algorithm has been compiled into the version of GPG 1.0.7 for=20
Windows at http://www.nullify.org.
However, you would only need this if you correspond with somebody that=20
ONLY encrypts with PGP 2.6.x and insists upon similar encryption in=20
return. And for that you could get PGP 2.6.x as well.......
