You don't want DSA on smartcards - at least not until they are able to
do deterministic DSA (rfc-6979).
ECC on smartcards is available for a very long time because that used to
be the only method to do pubkey crypto with reasonable performance on
cards without a hardware exponentiation circuit. The ZeitControl cards
have support for some NIST curves but it is not yet supported by by the
OpenPGP card application. I am not sure whether it is a good idea to go
with the NIST curves because ECDSA suffers from the same problem has
What about trying to implement Ed25519 on a Java card?
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
