> Hi Robert, This looks great. One very minor point (possibly not
> germane, please comment): Are you discussing the reliability of the
> NIST P curves for ECC?
No, because that's the first time anyone's asked that question on the
list -- so it's not a frequently asked question. :)
> What is GPG planning as the default curves? NIST, Brainpool or ?
Beats me, you'd have to ask Werner, I have no involvement with the code,
and I can't even tell you which curves I'd personally recommend.
Due to my father being a U.S. federal judge, I think a lot of the GnuPG
community would react very badly to me ever touching the GnuPG code. In
deference to their wishes, I limit myself to maintaining the FAQ and
answering routine questions. "Which curves will we use and why?" is not
within my remit. :)
